I recall your darkness when it crackled like a thunder cloud - Shakedown Street
I'm sure you've thought you really knew someone and then they did something so out- of-character, so outrageous, so unforgivable. Why do people pretend to be someone there are not? I would ask myself this question over and over. Ah..........they are playing the role, trying to be the person they want to become. Thinking that if they "act as if" then it will be so. I forgive them for trying. It must be torturous to spend a life convincing your heart to feel what is right. But still, I sometimes cry.
