"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing." ~Camille Pissarro


I have met perfection
And she lives behind a graceful veil
That covers her so beautifully
But I have always wondered
How she breaths down there

I have walked beside her
And I have watched her smile
With a charm almost inhuman
But when you peer in closely
You'll notice that it cracks

I have heard the way she speaks
Of the rose-paved path that lays ahead
And she swears she's felt the petals
But when her words come to an end
The air tastes so uncertain

I have seen her laughing
And watched her light up many rooms
With just a spark of her bright eyes
But I've also caught a hint of smoke
And I'm afraid that she's on fire

Yes, I have met perfection
And true, I've seen what she can do
But I would not want to be her
Because what some might call desired
I call tragedy

"heaven's not a place that you go when you die. it's that feeling in time when you feel alive."

Love how at the end of the stanza you have a "but". Love this poem and love your choice of words. 5/5! thanks for sharing such a good poem!

The way you write here sounds so delicate--and you are so good at personification!--unless this is someone you know or have imagined.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

You're Welcome!

  Aw, you are so sweet! I can't tell you how much all your comments have meant to me! However, I have read a lot of your stuff, and I certainly do not think that I am any better at communicating my ideas than you are. People are generally their own worst critics. And I’m glad you liked the picture! I noticed that you used it for one of your poems as well. :) (I think you submitted yours before mine, so I guess you win there :P)
