Life In The shadows

I lived life in the shadows

pretending to be someone,

that i would never be,

I hid my true self behind closed doors,

I was living my life,

trying to live up to everyones expectations,

a perfect little angel,

the good girl from the start,

But i had turned bitter,

when love tore my heart,

I was falling apart,

letting everyone down,

including myself,

I felt like my own dreams

were collecting dust on a shelf

Everything I wanted was put on a back burner,

Couldnt live for myself,

My true self was never a perfect angel,

I was a rebel,

just wanting to be loved by someone,

A little older,

here I stand a bit colder,

Wanting to cry on someones shoulder,

Still hiding behind the shadows,

Will the truth ever be shown?
