Lost in a lonely world, With no place left to go. People always around me, but its only just a show. My life is just a perception, of what I want them to see. They don't understand, They don't know the real me. They all pretend that they care, Say the right things when I'm needed.. When I let my guard down, I'm left shattered and defeated I try to mask the pain I feel, With a smile on my face. It doesn't matter where I am, I still feel out of place. I am the outsider, That's always looking in. Im fighting this constant battle, I can never seem to win. As I sit here in silence, I don't know what to say. How can I make them understand? That hearts are not for play.

Hi Dianna well depicted. I have felt like this many times. you have to be strong and not let them defeat you. Once they know you are down they will keep kicking. Thanks for sharing this
