The Girl Playing Pretend

I’m the girl with the good head on her shoulders…
I’m the girl with the amazing God given talent…
I’m the girl with the creative mind…
I’m the girl with such sweet goodness in her heart…
I’m the girl who can do anything…
I‘m the girl with the hilarious jokes…
I’m the most amazing girl you’ve ever met…
I’m the coolest girl you’ve ever known…
You say I’m so fun and hilarious…
You say I’m different than other girls…
And I say I’m an original!
But then I just turn out to be a mess you don‘t want around…

She’s not as great as you think…
She’s hiding a mess…
She’s hiding a scary part of her…
She’s hiding all the tears…

Cause she knows she’s a mess…
Cause she knows she’s never been perfect…
Cause she knows she’s horrible…
Cause she knows the truth…
Because she hates the mess she is…

Now you leave cause I’m not what you thought…
Now you don’t like me as much as you used to…
Now you know all this is just a desperate cry for love…
Now you know I’m not so cool…
Now you’re scared of me…
Just like everyone else…

She’ll try to keep herself perfect…
She’ll try to hide everything…
She’ll try to hold herself together…
So you won’t leave…

But she knows you will…
She knows she has to let you go…
She knows she has to let you runaway…
She knows she’s no good for you…
She knows she's a wreck…
And she knows no one will stay and help…

She knows she's anything but perfect…
She knows she’ll never be perfect…
She knows the talent is something she’s not…
All the talent is just something she doesn’t deserve…
She was just lucky at birth…
The shine she shines is all just false glamour…
And she’s a mess you don’t want to be apart of…
 
She's just a pathetic girl playling pretend...
And she'll feel so guilty...
Because she's really just a mess no one wants...
Author's Notes:
It kinda sounds like I'm trying to avoid that this poem is about me...No...I wrote it one way originally and then I went back and added some stuff in between...So in some places I'll say "she" or "her" and in others I say "me" and "I"...
 
It's the same person: Me...Sorry 'bout that...

well, i'd have to say that this girl knows herself pretty well and she needs a little confidence.  great job in expressing the wide range of elements, both good and not-so-good, that are at our hero's core.  don't think she's pretending - she is what she is.  good work, hoosier gal.
