Perfect Lie

by darklyloved

They say I'm perfect.

That everything I do is perfect.

They look in the mirror then at me,

and they say that I'm too perfect

to even exist.

My personality,

the things I say or read or want,

they shower me with the word


But no one stands and thinks

that maybe I'm a little...

TOO perfect?

That maybe behind my perfect makeup

that there's something else...?

Something I hide?

Until you came along and used the word perfect

in a way no one has ever used it.

You said I'm a perfect lie.

That was profoundly amazing. It hurt to read it, it's deeply sad. Great work!
