8 (who?)
Why can’t I say what I want
In this world where deception rules
And fake smiles hold families together?
Why is it so hard
For me to be honest
When all my life I’ve lied?
In this world of lightly treading
Manipulation and untruths
Why is it that honesty
Solves my problems
But hurts everyone else?
Is that all I’m meant to do?
To cause pain and misery?
Why have I tried all my life
To disguise my emotions,
To protect people,
Only to find that
It hurts them all the same?
Perhaps I am selfish.
In protecting them,
I protected myself
I never wanted
to hurt anyone
So I took myself away
Living under a mask
Shrouded in lies
I fooled even myself
Into thinking I was the hero
Instead I am the siren;
I am the villain
Just frustrated with the world. I'm ok. Promise. Knowing you guys are here is enough. So thank you.

Also, pretty sure the flow doesn't work so well in this one. Tell me what you think.

Don't you worry. I can't ever believe you could be a villain.

I am sure it's better for you now... maybe... but just keep your chin up, eh? Don't want to anyone see down the abyss of sadness. :huggle:

In someone's story out there, I am. Technically, most of us are. 

And no worries. it has gotten a little better, but I'm still dealing with the same issues technically. It's just at peace time during the war. XD if that makes sense.

Indeed. But no good can exist without the bad, right? But that minority doesn't make us all villains, or heroes, like that. We are people, just like we are. There's no changing to that, unless something greater happens. Titles like 'villains' or 'heroes' are mostly given by more drastic actions' consequences. That means you have to earn that name/title first.

It does make sense... and I understand. Just don't ever let your hopes down, you can fight through!

Exactly. And I sort of did do a few things to earn that title in someone else's book. But hey, it's cool now.

Thanks love. :hug: I'm lucky and grateful to have friends like you.

Oh chica, you are not a villain or even a siren. You are you. And you look out for what's best for people. But never yourself. Sometimes you have to look out for numero uno. And that's you. You can't always sugar coat things because, well, life isn't meant to be sweet. All the same, I hope this message finds you finds you fit and well.

:heart: Kara

Well, it's found me fit and well in the mind. Can't say the same physically. Pneumonia's trying to kill me, but I guess I'm just too stubborn to die. XD Thank you for your beautiful and kind words, my friend. :tighthug: I miss you more than words could ever express.

Yes I must. My bday party is probably going to be the 25th. You in?

It wasn't the 25th. We aren't going to be doing one this year, so I intend to spend some quality time with everyone who was invited. Which of course, means you and I get to hang out soon.
