I love the person that you are to me
But who's this other person you like to show
You know the one that others see
this stranger I don't know

The one that lies and is deceitful
Not the person you really are
But when we get around others
You seem to be rather bazaar

In so many ways you are wonderful
Trustworthy, confidante and friend
We can talk to each other about anything
For hours that don't seem to end

Then we go out in public
And strangers we come upon
This act you put on freaks me out
It leaves me standing there stunned

If only you knew how it effects me
Makes me doubt this person I know
Perhaps the real act is the one I believe
Ah, "what a tangled web we weave.."

------- Author's Notes -------

*Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive!
Sir Walter Scott, Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.
Scottish author & novelist (1771 - 1832)

true words

I always say you can love someone, but not always like them! Great thoughts.

Great point Dreamer,

i know from where the thoughts of your heart speak, to know one person's heart one way, yet upon the open road where the wind does blow.. a stranger develops.. we accept because we are not perfect, yet we accept nothing less from ourselves...

Be real in public and in private, regardless who you're around. Good one!
