And just for thought...
Close your eyes and tell me what you see.
Is it darkness under your eyelids?
Or do you see something else?
Do you see me?
I am standing before you.
I have no armor, no protection.
You can do what you wish but do not try to change me.
Under your misconceptions, I am there.
I cannot be the angel you have convinced yourself I am.
You consistently slash at me, trying to change what you see.
You want me to be honest with everything
but you don't like the truth that I try to tell you.
So close your eyes.
I am the darkness that you see, all I've ever been.
My heart is black and my soul is scarred.
You cannot rearrange that.
You want me to fit into your perfection but I will always be flawed.
Do you realize I have lived an entire life before you?
You don't accept me and you never will
so how can you ever truly love me?
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
