the perfect sky

Published April 30, 2010 by crystalights

 

you’re a little late

i’m already torn

i’m okay.

even as tears stain my pillow

i tell myself that i’m okay.

.

you always fuss over things like this

but don’t you know

that it’s hard for me to say no

?

i can’t do it the way it’s always been done

i’m not like that perfect sky

.

but i want to be.

perfect.

or at least good enough for you.

.

and yet even when these tears fall it remains unseen.

.

because i want to be perfect that way.

.

at least through your eyes.

.

that’s why i call myself a liar

because with you and everybody else, the truth doesn’t matter anymore.

.

it doesn’t matter what i feel

it doesn’t matter what i see. or don’t get to see.

.

i’ve always been torn apart

like this

in so many ways

.

i’m wide awake

and i can see

the perfect sky is torn

.
