First Impression

First Impression

When you meet me you will think,
awe that’s a cute girl who’s really very sweet.
Because that is the person I want you to see.
How good I have become at hiding the mess I used to be.
It is not your right or privilege to know.
The pain I hide in my mind and I choose not show.
Those are my burdens that I carry heavy and deep.
It is my choice to not share them every time I speak.
They stay closed tightly, guarded by my hearts lock and key.
These pained memories are for me and only mine to keep.
That’s why I’ll smile nicely and quietly disguise,
the things you’ll never recognize hidden behind my eyes.

When we meet.

I’m a perfectly imperfect woman. I question everything, EVERYTHING! I’ve always been to much. I’m to emotional, I’m to intense, I’m to much on most days. I’m so damn empathetic that it drives me nuts on most days! What can I say... I’m a Scorpio and like most water signs my emotions run deep and my passion is like a raging ocean. I’m simply just another person trying to heal and overcome the pain that life has thrown my way. One way I do this is by spilling my thoughts and feelings out on paper where my mind and heart always feel comfortable to open up.
