Perfect - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

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


when you came along

but it's too late


I let you go.

I just want it

to be perfect.

I want to be,


Therefore, I can't


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.
