PERFECTION
by: Ang

P eople look and hold silent expectations, higher than I am willing to jump

E xperiencing my fear, blank insinuations of my life, expecting to find the infallible

R unning into walls, leaving my life smeared with smelly paint fumes permanently poisoning my displayed bones

F ighting continuously with the echoes of the eating beast-always there, trying to drown out my powerful angelic voice

E rosion of my mind, body and soul, I am trying to bypass the rocks by concentrating on what means the most-ME

C lose to chasing it away, seemingly a never ending chase of my own existence

T oo much interference, black and white static, loosing the clear reception I once had, but still trying to move the antennas to see what I can

I ndecisiveness unravels my questions, my own expectations an immeasurable overbalance, streaming beyond Heaven

O ngoing insistence from the outside, a friend connected permanently to my heart, interrogating me, creatively searching for a rational interpretation

N onetheless, giving up the notion of perfection, but hanging on to the idea of happiness.
