The Truth

Do you fall in love easily?

Would you do something if you couldn't tell anyone?
Should you really keep your friends close and your enemies closer?
Do you find the need to clean your room before you do your homework?
I clean afterwards, it’s therapudic
Is Amanda telling the truth?

My thoughts on Amanda

Amanda is…
a complete mystery
She’s also…
a saint, my saviour, a freak, a complete fake, my hero, the real deal, original, brilliant, affected, a seer, visionary, an artist, gifted, kind, Robin Hood, a loner, courageous, brave, beautiful, weird, bizarre, wild, from another planet, crazy, divine, amazing, creepy, gorgeous, a chameleon, hypnotic, totally psycho, bewitching, intense, enchanting, totally hiding something, for real, vintage fabulous, from another realm, dangerous, diabolical, my friend, can’t be trusted, the most trusted, my adventure, the best thing that ever happened to me, a fake, a liar
