pretending: a limerick.

shadow heart.

I don’t know the beginning but I know the ending
You pull me in close then push me away defending
You never surrender your heart
Every time it tears us apart
Yet I land back in your arms pretending

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.
