"You write so beautifully. Your mind must be a terrible place."
Always on the lookout for tragic backstories and broken characters. :D

I've got an ongoing series called Stereo Tropes Co.! Where story tropes run amuck!
Search up "Stereo Tropes Co." to find the pieces.
If you want to read them in order, follow the numbers in the titles :)

Creatively Deceptive, I Hide my Racing Mind | #IAmContest

I am creatively deceptive and I hide my racing mind
I wonder why worrying comes so easily
I hear taunts and jeers, not really there
I see colors in music and song titles 
I want to lead people to a better life
I am known as being chill but hide my racing mind

I pretend that I'm the happy one, because I've kept up this image for so long 
I feel close to characters that only live in my brain, no one will feel the same
I touch their hands, hold them, because they are reflections of me, pieces of me
I worry about myself, because look at me (I don't want to) I'm a mess 
I cry about the lies people so easily gobble up 
I am creatively deceptive and I hide my racing mind

I understand that not everyone will believe 
I say "I believe" (but only in my head, 'cause what would they think of me if I said it out loud?) 
I dream of composing music, touching hearts, having the melody speak for me, so I don't have to open my mouth
I try to be optimistic, to be supportive, to be that shoulder to lean on 
I hope one day I won't be scared of mistakes 
I am creatively deceptive and I hide my racing mind


 
Yep. This is me. :D

    Wow I love the words "I hide my racing mind." I don't know, something about that phrase just really speaks to me. Great job capturing yourself in a poem, I feel like I know you better from reading this. (hope that didn't sound creepy at all) :)
