Lexi is a girl, striving for perfection,
Doing whatever possible, to avoid cruel known rejection,
But in the sight of a rare star,
Her attitude drops as low as a cell bar,
She sets herself up,
To Crash and burn,
Will she ever learn?
How a lose exceeds triumph,
When learning your mistake,
Its time for her to shake it off,
Rise, and awake.

"For all of those who are a little too intense and waste too much energy on winning."

I absolutely love this! I myself actually have OCD and this poem describes me completely. Could you please check out my story about my OCD? It would mean a lot. I accidentally submitted it anonymously, but I put the link for it in the "About Me" box on my page.

Wow, short, sweet, and smooth!  I think that this describes perfectionism more than OCD, though.  OCD is not merely striving to win and be perfect, but doing compulsive rituals and things like that.

okay thanks  for your advice  but perfectionism was one of the main ideas also.

I have to say it is different. I do like the way that you portrayed Lexi's OCD, but, sorry to say, I wouldn't have picked up anything more than perfectionism if it weren't for the "Author's comments"
