plastic personality

perfect as you think you are,
look around and see all those who
always focus on the facts and accurate timelines,
soothe yourself with your lies but
take time to see those eyes on your every move,
intend one thing but let another happen and they will
catch on to you and hound you and haunt
places and people you thought you were close to,
each time one of them changes and wants you away,
reach out to them and they disappear like a ghost,
some moments like that make you realize who is real,
over-correction won’t help this problem flooding your life,
names of faces are never remembered as well as lessons,
allow yourself to forget how much people hate you yet
light the flame that shines on your falsehood,
ignite a drive to get something done about
those problems you yourself have created,
your time is nearly up
