Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith


You don't know how much it takes
To make it through the endless everyday
Showing a fresh face to disguise the pain
And everybody doesn't even know
How many times this mask of mine will grow
Although I rip it off at night it comes back in the morning

You don't know how much I fear
The life I lead makes me want to disappear
Giving everything I have takes it all
I say that these feet begin to tire
Struggling to find a way out of the mire
My mind is weary of putting up the walls

You don't know what's really inside
The past that haunts and fears that slide
Around in the back of my brain at night
Everything that ever was me
Is turning into a blinding disease
'Cause I don't if I'm all right

You don't see anything
Except what I want you t see
But the things that I show you
Aren't even really me

You don't know who I am
I'm too afraid to look in your eyes
The starlight that begs to be let out
Hidden behind my endless lies

You don't know me
Will I ever find the courage to tell you?
