I'm quiet and shy, but obnoxious and loud
It just depends whose opinion you ask,
I'm beautiful, yet ugly
I wear more than one mask.
I'm happy and bubbly, boring and sad
The best and worst friend you've had,
I'm humble, conceited
And I won't be defeated.

I'm set in my ways, but a walking contradiction
Changing for people seems to be my addiction.

I am stubborn, but am easy to persuade
It just depends on the moon and the tides,
I love you dearly, yet hate you so much
I'm just one big thrill ride.
I needed you then, but now I really don't
I'll be nice and then I won't,
I'm coming, I'm going
Ignorant and all-knowing.

I'm set in my ways, but a walking contradiction
Changing for people seems to be my addiction.

I'm consistently inconsistent,
Unpredictably predictable
Perfectly imperfect
Unashamedly shameful.

I'm set in my ways, but a walking contradiction
Changing for people seems to be my addiction.
A bit of who I am.

I try not to change how I act, but I always end up doing it. :tighthug: nice mood, flow and rhyme.

"We've got the gunslinger extraordinaire, walking contradiction
And I for one can see no blood from the hearts and the wrists you allegedly slit"

I can identify most with this part:
I'm quiet and shy, but obnoxious and loud
It just depends whose opinion you ask


And sadly, this part applies if you ask a certain ex-friend =/
The best and worst friend you've had

It's amazing how much we change how we act, all just depending on who we're around. Most of the time I don't even realize I'm doing it, but in hindsight, it's obvious.

OMG! I LOVE Panic At The Disco! :heart:

It really is quite odd, how we change unknowingly. Thing is, the best (and worst) of us all do it. It's a sad world if we fear truly being ourselves around certain people, and become social chameleons.

I love that you used the word chameleon. My best friend is said to have the chameleon effect - she can blend in with any social group at all, in the blink of an eye. I fear being myself around most people because they are so prejudiced. Although maybe thinking that is a prejudice of my own...

LOL! I love chameleons... And I use that word at least once a week. :P

For the most part I am the social chameleon as well. Which is both beneficial and detrimental at the same time. Very few people see who I really am. It's the best friends, a few family members... Though I put my heart and soul into being ME on here. So people looking through my gallery actually see more of me than some of my friends do. Kinda depressing, really.

It *is* a pretty spiffy word :P

Same here, I try to be more "me" on here too. I don't think most of my friends even realize I write (I'm too shy to tell them though, haha).

HouseOfGimp Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
OMIGAWD!!! You said "spiffy"... *Falls in instant nerd-love* I LOVE THAT WORD! Don't have a clue why. Nobody else uses it (except for you, it seems), and whenever I do, people look at me like I'm 'special'... It's just... Nifty. :P

Most of my friends don't even realise I write either. Or sing. Or write my own songs... One of my friends nearly killed me for not telling him I sing and write my own song, after he quite literally stumbled upon my youtube page. He listened to "Housemates And Post-it Notes", and if he hadn't have heard my talk-y bit at the start, he wouldn't have believed it was me. So now word is out, and everyone is like "OMIGAWD!!! Katie sings!!! SING FOR ME, KATIE!!" :ohmygod:

:rofl: It's one of my favorite words to use!! I've said it enough that a few of my friends now use it too, though it is generally known that that is *my* word for stuff. Much like my "heyo" instead of "hey". (If you tell me you use "heyo" as well, I'll just be freaked out >_>)

Ahahaha. I shouldn't laugh, but that's funny :XD:

:happycry: Oh that is excellent.
I don't use "heyo", BUT I do use "Hiyo" and "Heya"...
This is getting weird now. *looks around suspiciously*

No, I miss people not demanding I sing for them. I can sing in front of huge audiences. But I can't sing in front of friends... It's just... I don't know. I don't care if someone I don't know doesn't like my music or what not... But I DO care what my friends think, so, me being the pessimist, cut out the middle man.

You are welcome. I will have to look through youir gallery later on today. I need to find the style you write in. It is pretty good.

Naaawww, that's so sweet. I don't actually know what I style I use. LOL.. I just... Write... Sometimes I go for rhyme, sometimes syllables, but mostly I just write whatever comes. It's... Odd. But, I'm quite touched that you are fond enough of my writing to try to work it out. If you do, let me know! :P

After reading them, I ahve figured out what they are based on, for the most part. You base it on love, the painf of such an emotion can cause, and the deadly pains you have had to go through with your own doubts that may have plagued your mind at times

:iconhouseofgimp:
HouseOfGimp Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
Yeah, I think you're right. I really think love is my 'guiding emotion'... I'm slow to allow myself to love, be it romantically or in the platonic sense, but once I do, it's a very strong love. *sigh*

I'm just replying to messages at the moment. It's 5:20am here, and I'm on my fourth night in a row without any sleep, so I'm not going to read poetry like this. It'll just not make sense. But I have you bookmarked, and I will have free time after dinner, so, I will have a thorough look then. :D

Naw. It's a sad thing, but you can't deny, emotions are sometimes worded better in those moods. :meow:

Hehheh. It's just one of those things, I guess.
I really wish I could write about happier things, though. :\
I think the happiest thing I've written in months is "Friends Through Odd Realities", which was followed up with "I Am Not His Cure"... It's hard to believe those two pieces are about the same person. *sigh*
I guess I'll leave the happier poetry to everyone else, and continue writing my angsty stuff, which people seem to really like. :P
