Perfect


Or maybe I just want it

to be perfect

I want me to be perfect

I want you to be perfect

Maybe I will always be

like this

always weak

until I realized

that I need someone to be strong

until I realize

that I can't do it alone

until I realize that I was

perfect,

when you came along

but it's too late

because

I let you go.

I just want it

to be perfect.

I want to be,

Perfect.

Therefore, I can't

Love.

You know I just want to

rest on your shoulder and cry

on your chest. I'm tired of myself,

always wanting to be perfect.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
