We’re all fake

Inside and out

Over baked from this emotional drought

Never taught how to interact

Always giving the wrong reaction

Oh well

On to the next distraction

Just for one last hit at possible satisfaction

    Oh, this was poetic gold, Atomic Historian!

  • I guess we're all fake in one way or another. As long as we're not lying to ourselves, I guess it's okay!

  • Fake--always trying to decide which mask will win us the prize we so desire when what we most desperately need is to be seen, accepted & loved for who we are with no masks at all.
