Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Picture me however you want, just don't pretend you know me...
Picture me, a socialite
My throat adorned with pearls;
Scars hidden by a black silk dress
And hair done up in curls

Picture me, a drama queen,
A new act every day;
I make mountains out of molehills
When things don't go my way.

Picture me, a softball star,
Three strikes, that's it, you're done.
Being known as "one of the jocks"
Pretending to have fun.

Picture me, a little girl
Abused for much too long.
Hiding behind this mask I wear,
Pretending to be strong.

Picture me, however you wish
Pretend you know me well.
Just don't judge me 'til you know
The truth about my hell.
