Toxic Poetrii

(12/12/90 / Virginia)

Picture perfect

At that one moment
And only for that moment
I become perfection in a reflection
Holding that pose
Even though she knows That stance is merely a diguise
That hides my harsh truth
from her rough reality
All of that irrelevant when that light flashes
And my trouble crashes with the long hand on a clock
And blocks it's destructive path
So it's left with no other choice than to stop.

And at that one moment
And only for that moment
Time stands still and leaves the real to her imagination
She says...She can see right through my photo finished image
Cropped and edited but she can still see the vengeance
She can still see the anger and frustration in my eyes
She can still hear the tears and the pain in my cries
She can still feel the honesty and the truth behind my lies
And i'm not suprised

But at that one moment
And only for that moment
Time stands still
Leaving the real to your imagination
When I become perfection in a reflection
That hides my harsh truth
From her rough reality

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
