Perfect...I'm Sorry


The perfect little girl,
With a smile on her face,
But underneath this shell,
Is a soul the world has erase,

Put on a pretty dress,
Then sit up straight,
Never let the world see you,
Arrive at a function late,

I'm sorry I can't be perfect,
Not perfect enough for you,
I just hope all my problems,
Haven't caused us to be through,

I wish I could change me,
But it's not that simple, not like that,
Life can just be so hard,
When I keep changing hats,

Perfection in a bottle,
I wish it was true,
That wasy I could spend,
The rest of my life with you,

I'm sorry for all the,
Things I have done,
I wish all this guilt,
Would stop weighing a ton,

I'm nothing close to perfect,
I'll never say I was,
I just wish you could forgive me,
Even if it's 'just cuz, '

I feel guilty enough for,
The both of us together,
I will carry this around,
It's with me for forever,

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
Not perfect as can be,
But I will not lie to you,
This is who I am, this is me.

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,
