Again, just got bored and felt like I was on a roll writing.

I am who you want me to be.

Behind a brightly lit screen-

A portal of anonymity-

I say everything you could ever want to hear.

I do everything you could possibly ask for.

Because I’m empty.


I’ve surrendered myself,

An inferior personality.

Tearing apart what makes me,

Me –

For you.


I can’t deal with the uncertainty-

Of being myself around you.

What if you don’t like me?

What I say-

What I do?


But I know you’ll like me.

Because I know you better than you do.

Your interests, your friends-

The trends that you follow.

You’ll have to like me.


It’s foolproof.

I’ve thought this out.

Considered every possibility.

Planned for every outcome.

There’s no way that I can fail.


Actually, now that I think about it,

I’m not empty.

I’ve slowly come to the realization that

I’m full –

Full of lies.
