good or evil.

x is for x-rated.

A sweet girl
Quiet and shy
Took forever to reveal
What she had buried inside
She was taught
Virtuous and pure
Spent too long pretending
Though it never suited her
When she looks serene
Almost sedated
Calm innocence is her mask
But her thoughts are x-rated

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
