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 Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
