Masquerade (press)

To you, aren't I
smart
sweet
stable
secure
honest
diligent
intelligent
happy
cute?
Only those who can see through me
know who I am
because really,
you can't see me.
You can't see that I am
troubled
sad
insecure
scared
unstable
uninformed
lying
barely able to get by?
How can you not?
It's so obvious.
I am playing masquerade
with you and
with myself

I just wanted to say, before I scare you, that the line that says "barely able to get by" doesn't mean that I am about to commit suicide. When I read it over to myself, I realized that it sounded like that, and I just wanted to clarify. Also, the line that says "lying" doesn't mean I am a liar, so, yes, you can trust me.

Ooooh no I like the "lying/barely able to get by?" b/c it sounds like you are lying (as in untruthful) and then lying like you are dragging yourself along.
Very nice!!
