I'm No Angel

by Jenni Marie   Nov 5, 2007

Painting on a beautiful smile, pretending to care
Acting innocent, in reality I'm harsh mean and unfair
Glowing eyes that sparkle, covering up all the lies
Everyone loves me, but I'm happily living in disguise

Thinking I'm so sweet, when all I do is play mind games
Taking pleasure in shame, purposely causing pain
A flawless exterior, hides all the evil that I hold inside
Relishing in the fact, that so many people have cried

Getting high of pain, enjoying all of the misery
Watching other's slowly fall apart, to me is ecstasy
Playing people of on each other, laughing inside
It's so easy to cause trouble, barely have to try

Yet no one knows, "Such an angel," they smile
No idea behind my disguise, mind is full of guile
Wish someone would play, that would be just fine
Make it a little harder, to outwit them everytime

Intricately spun lies, spinning rapidly out of control
Such a long time ago, that darkness took my soul
Enjoying all of the drama, and many tears that fall
No one ever guesses, I'm the one who caused it all

    Guilt confessed, is Truth acknowledged. Heart guided by Truth, will save harm.

    Everyone wears different masks at some point in life. They can cover a forced smile,
    a hurt within.

    I actually.. totally feel like this right now. Everybody always sees me as the cute little quiet girl.. meanwhile, I'm always thinking about things.. and being quite mean at times.
    So that's the totally great thing about this poem, I can rely to it =] -At this moment.. -

    But even if I wasn't in the mood I am in right now, I would still think it is a beautiful poem =] Nicely rimed and a good flow.
    Keep up the good work.
