Never a failure. Always a lesson.

so i'm up again
dabbing at my eyeballs
hiding the fact i'm practically blind,
and pulling at two sleepless chunks of my thick hair repeatedly

it's here i remember the nights
i promised myself that i was okay
after hours of feeling fingertips play across my spine so unconditionally..
those nights were scary to believe

i realize i haven't changed at all, haven't
convinced my reflection that i'm perfect enough to live and be
in love

so here i go up again,
everyday with that scratched record effect
collapsing into mirrors
still trying to be beautiful enough to love.

I was inspired by a relationship in which I found I had to perfect for this person. They asked for a lot from me, and i felt like I couldn't give all they wanted. I felt trapped, but something good came out of it. Words :)
