What is the difference between a filter and myself?
Is there a clean line that can be drawn?
Is there a simple way to say this is me,
and that is who you think I am?
No, there is truth in lies
Honesty lies in our deciet
Politness is my veneer
Or is it just the only side of myself that I am willing to show you?
There is no makeup I hide behind
Only a polite smile
I hide behind rigid welcomes used by all
How can you know me if I use the words billions of other utter every day?
Words spoken, not to truely inquire,
but to quietly smother any real conversation that may take place
I enjoy the safety of politeness
How can someone be mean to a nice, sweet, polite girl
How rude of them!
No, how rude of me
I do not want to get to know you
I want only silence
I have heard you speak before
You are rude
You are a backstabber
I have heard you
I know you
Which is why I will not let you get to know me
I speak a thousand words in my silence
You speak nothing
and do so loudly
Your words mean nothing
and you mean nothing to me
My politness is not so much a filter
as it is a shield
I hide from people like you
I do not have time for people like you
However, the shield is thin
Sometimes people anger me
and then I am not silent
I am quiet,
but I am not weak.
I prefer to stay removed from people
but I will not sit idly by and let you hurt them
I may not like talking to them
but I also do not like to see them hurt
I want to help
I will help
I will deal with you
I will tear you down
I will not let you hurt someone when I can prevent it
I am strong
you are weakness personified
You cannot hide behind words
All your words are empty
You cannot hide behind your actions
You have none
