Everything is Perfect

People say I’ve got it all
Perfect looks
The perfect relationship
Perfect house

All the girls are jealous
All the guys are lusting
But would they feel the same way
If they knew?

Inside this perfect body
Are perfect cries of help
Perfect insecurities
And perfect pain like you wouldn’t know

Inside this perfect relationship
Are perfect fights
Perfect pressure
And perfect tension

Inside this perfect house
Is perfect emptiness
Perfect loneliness
And perfect sleepless nights

Sure.
I’ve got it all
And everything is perfect.
Thanks for asking

I can totally relate. I've felt this exact way before, and you put the feeling into words flawlessly. Amazing, keep it up!

Thank you! I'm just really mad I couldn't type the italics! It reads a lot better if the right "perfect"s are italicized... But thank you VERY much for your comment!! :) :) <3
