Imperfections

Imperfections

I lay my
imperfections
on the table
One by one,
define my flaws
Outline my various
Shortcomings
Tag,
Elaborate
Each clause

Mark them out
In black, and white
Tell you why
My faith
Is a ruse
Why I am so
crippled
incomplete
What makes me so
Damaged
Used

One by one,
You count them with me
Show me how the
Faults
Add strength
The convolutions
Build character
How the shadows
Are my friends
How my comfort zone
extended
Enumerate
The times I broke
Versus
The times I mended
Just like that
Erase
My strokes

I am whole
In realization
Not just when
You hold my hands
But also when
I am alone,
I am whole,
I understand

You make me see
In the darkness
Comprehension is
Liberating
You obliterate each
Imperfection
Just by being
Just by being

    It’s by our imperfections that we become individuals, Cookie, and those, in and of themselves, can be beautiful. Perfection is so over-rated and boring ! xo

    • Indeed, Paul-Bear. There’s something about there being no true beauty without some flaw in the make, I believe. Plus I need to have ‘something’ to strive for… *preens* heehee πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      *squish hugs* Paul! πŸ™‚

    Absolutely beautiful, the concept and the way you’ve written it. I love the idea of accepting our shades and shadows and dirty business into our whole as a person still worthy.

    • Isn’t it so difficult to reconcile just that? You’d think it would be easier, seeing as none of us are perfect and all of us are flawed… But well. Thank you for reading it. I’m so glad you liked it. πŸ™‚ ❀

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction and a good teacher helps. Nice work.
