Treasure Island

Unknown Ever

(Woodhaven MI)

Who I am


I'm not a risk taker. I'm the one who stands in the background encouraging others to shine and giving them love leaving none for myself without them knowing it.

I'm not a loud person. I am the one sitting in the back and suffering in silence as the terrible days pass but no one can see my invisible tears and scars and the ones who do don't care.

I'm not mean. I love with the passion of the sun but can't find anyone to share it with even through miles of searching.

I am not an attention seeker. I cause pain to myself because without it I am left numb and abandoned by what I thought was the goodness in my soul but turned out to be fakeness built on deception and lies.

I AM ME.

    I am not an attention seeker.
    May be, but you've caught my attention. Very attractive four stanzas, that only increases the desire to know more about you. Would you like to expose yourself a bit more or you feel happy to enjoy the obscurity?
    Your note adds to the puzzle. (Report) Reply

Far south the lift,
