PERFECT LIE

PERFECT LIE

A Poem by Sylvia Chika



She tried

She tried so hard

Not to make a mistake

She covered all her flaws

Pacing through life on tipped toes

Trying so hard not to make a mistake

But that in itself was the mistake

She was meant to live

She was meant to love

She was meant to jump

She was meant to play

She was meant to be free

She was meant to make mistakes

And laugh at the silliest jokes

She was meant to dance in the rain

Let her hair down

And sing a rhythmless song

But she kept it all bottled up

And put on a show for everyone

Feigning a perfect existence

Feigning a perfect life

Living a perfect lie

Caught in the perfect web

A web of lies
