Imperfections scarred across my body
Flaws shining like diamond rings on rich delicate fingers.
The sparkles that once existed, are now dull specs in my brown eyes.
I am unable to pretend that the scars are not deep, that the smiles are real.
The sadness consumes me entirely, the emptiness now a part of me
Loneliness has become my identity
My anger gets the best of me
I am too broken to make sense
I cut off those who love me most
I don’t let anyone get close enough
I lash out when I mean to say I need you
I slam the door when I need your touch
If you haven’t been down this road
You can never understand
that I am as imperfect as they come.
