Writing Wednesday #23

A poem

Hello! I thought I'd share a poem with y'all that I wrote awhile back. It was inspired by a friend of mine. 

Everyone looked at the girl in a perfect blue dress 
She looked like perfection would be less 
She loved her family and they loved her back 
And for making friends she had a knack
She was perfect in every sense 
No one ever called her dense. 
If you asked her she would say she was fine 
In every way she seemed to shine. 
But once she breaks away from everyone with a sigh 
She goes by herself and has a cry 
Because even though she might look perfect 
Inside she is really quite wrecked. 
She holds a lot of hurt inside 
And she has no one in which to confide. 
Her heart hurts so much she thinks it will break 
When people call her perfect more pain does wake 
Because she knows she's just as flawed as the rest 
And she's been through just as hard of a test 
She try's to tell them all that she is flawed 
But they are all still by her awed. 
They refused to acknowledge she is not what they think 
And know that she is on the brink. 
She cry's in her room all alone 
All because they refuse to own 
That she really is not as perfect as she seems 
She is still the perfect girl in their dreams.
