Stranger With Your Face

Well what a surprise
I’ve found out all your lies
And now with my own eyes
I see through your disguise

What for years you’ve been hiding
Its cover’s been dieing
Now I’m done deciding
What to do with my finding

Now I can’t believe
You didn’t mean to deceive
When all the words I receive
Add to this web that you weave

I won’t forgive of forget
And you’ll come to regret
All the secrets you’ve kept
That I’ve come to except

Everything I thought I knew
Had believed and held true
All misconceptions I bid adieu
Because it turns out, I never knew you

5: Wow!


  I think that the idea of this poem was good but it was alittle weak with the wording. I think that it was going good but your right about the last stanza. it was a bit awkward but i really liked the last line. Maybe you could change-
"Everything I thought I knew
Had believed and held to be true


"Everything I thought I knew
I believed and held true

It fits and is still basically the same thing.

"All misconceptions to which I bid adieu"
Im not sure what to do about that. It sounds awkward but i dont know. maybe:

Your misconceptions are through.
or you could change the whole thing or keep it the same because it isnt that big of a deal. Whatever works for you.

I would keep the last line because it end the poem perfectly.

And the title works perfectly too. I think it is the title of a book. Im not sure though. Either way its perfect.

Your awesome,

  This makes me feel empty. (No, that's not a bad thing.)
I like this a lot, but I think it needs more descriptions.
Like, when you said "disguise," maybe you could break out a nifty metaphor explaining a certain type of disguise. I know you're familiar with costumes lol
I love that it's not too specific though, that way more people can relate.

The title is f***ing wonderful. It fits so perfectly.

I think this is my favorite part:

"I won’t forgive of forget
And you’ll come to regret
All the secrets you’ve kept
That I’ve come to except"

Quite impressive... it's like one big sentence
Plus, it made me sad.

I love the last line too. How well do you really know anyone these days? Everybody lies about something, even if it's just something stupid.

Oh hold on... I have to send pictures of my doggie to Ohio Tom lol

All right... I'm back... Where was I?
Oh yes: You can't be sure if you know anyone.

There's got to be at least one thing you don't know about me.
Like... I feel that life would be easier if everybody hated me because then I could kill myself without hurting anyone.
I would really LOVE to die (although I say I wouldn't). I know it sounds like one big pathetic cliché, but it's true.
But then again, you probably already knew that though.
Well, anyway, I suppose life wasn't meant to be easy, was it? I guess I'll just have to stay alive. lol
God, I'm sick.

And I disagree with what you said about the last stanza.
I don't think it feels awkward. Maybe the line, "Had believed and held to be true" does a little bit, but I wouldn't worry about it.

Overall, deary, I enjoyed this. I want to know more about it though. What was it inspired by?
Help me lol I'm interested.

Your talent never fails to amaze me

Your biggest fan in life EVER

  Ilike this, and the last stanza does not feel awkward I think it is perfect and you should not change one thing!

I hate it when you find out that a relationship you have had or are having is founded on lies because it will never survive, I just don't understand why people cannot be honest with each instead of hiding everything.

Well done
