The Unexpected Side

Fri, 08/28/2015 - 10:02 -- Bekah.M

You always hear,

"Never trust the quiet ones."

I must say, in my case,

That is true.

I am quiet

And I am shy,

But I also have

An unexpected side.

Quiet girls tend to be considered

Cute and innocent.

While, yes I too

Love cute and huggable characters,

I also have

An unexpected side.

I am quiet

And I am shy,

But, oh how I love horror!

The more gore, the better.

I am quiet

And I am shy,

But I also have

An unexpected side.

That, even with you,

I will not share

For fear of...

Oh, many things!

I am quiet

And I am shy,

But I also have

An unexpected side.

I know that if I open the doors

Of my heart too wide,

That many,

Yes, even my family

Will shun

And despise me.

I am quiet

And I am shy.

I just wish that,

One day,

Someone will look

At my heart

And tell me that this quiet

And shy one

Has finally found

A true friend

To love

The Unexpected Side.
