Chasing Perfection

Tremendous expectations embroidered

the speckles of his green eyes

intertwined with assumption of honesty,

the laws I created were carelessly broken.

Disappointment shattered into jagged

edges that punctured my skin

with each failed attempt to demonstrate

an honorable display of growth.

Inability for genuine trust became

the destruction of our togetherness.

The need for absolute perfection

clouded transparency of good intentions.

I obtained the power to exchange disbelief

with hope and enlightenment,

by limiting the impact of fear

on my ability to succeed by failure first.
