Facade

trapped inside four walls
in hell
trapped inside
imprisoned in my jail

all my secrets
all the hostilities
so far my plotting
is going well for me

forced responsibilities 
i welcome my way
so much to be a child again
to run and to play

childhood dreams
life so perfect back then
reality so close
just around the river bend

facade of smiles
true face of tears
wanting to be strong
but so many fears

there's a he involved
involved up to his ears
could i be with this man
for months, years?

making a future
nothing like the past
but in a way it is
i just hope it'll last

rocks in the road
rattling my tires
not to mention, the temptation
striving to fulill my desires

drowning in naivete, wish i could relax
and just sink
chances are, if i do 
BAM! 
heartache, 
stress, 
one blink!

i'm not stupid
yes, young i may be,
but i don't sport my stupidity
in the open, for all to see.

stupidity's my secret
in a box, under my bed
constant paranoia
engulfing my head

"no! stay back!
this you can't see,
I am marley cash,
the true meaning of responsibility.

I'm so smart,
beautiful too,
i am an awesome writer,
and can catch on to anything new.

i'm ready for this world
i'm gonna take it by storm
i'm marley cash
i break every norm."


	....ssh.  don't tell anyone, but i'm scared.

    I wish that I could vivify my comments to you and to all better. But I end up babbling and making no sense. So, I will leave you a message today letting you know I did read your poetry and I enjoyed it. I love reading poetry and the poets here are so talented. Have a wonderful day Marley. Love, Carol
