Perfection & all those salty tearsA Poem by Prudence Desideria
Short and sweet...
I have this star in my hand
Pretty and precious
Oh how I wish to hurt it
So simple, just a snap of my fingers
A word... Barely even an effort
Almost too easy
I hold this heart in my hand
I never asked for it in the first place
I never asked for you to hold mine
I asked you to let it go, over and over again
Instead you crush and squeeze
Almost as if you enjoyed it
There was a time I thought you knew everything
There were moments I thought I was crazy
There are times when I presume you to be out to get me
Then I realize you just react
You always told me 'don't be anything, be something'
You keep reminding me 'don't dream, do'
You're voice doesn't fade at 'no, not that... that's not for you'
Yours truly, 'do you really think this is the way to care?'
I forgive you
It's just a word
Just a thought I had
Perfection is impossible, and oh so boring
I hate you for doing this to me everytime
But I understand
Or at least, that I can never understand
Or, at least I'll try
I have a batch of emotions in my hand
I want to press, squeeze and crush it
But something is holding me back
Stupid chick flick moments...
