Nothing is Perfect

Taste the honey and endure the pain of the decaying tooth
Befriend her and watch her turn her back and leave
Make friends and observe your own unbelieving eyes when you are driven away from them
Kiss his lips and bear the pain of bitten tongue
Give birth and hear him not inviting you to his birthday party
Watch her beauty and ache the desire to hold her
Enjoy the night and burn in the heat of the regretful hell
Love him and swallow his devilishly unfair look at you

Nothing is perfect, ever, in this perfect world of the Gods!

:) Your life is perfect dear maman? How lovely!
I dont think my life is perfect and I think I am more than fine with it. It is just what it is.

No way... that was what my mother said, you know I was complaining about my whole life and that is because she wanted to say that compared to a lot of other people your life is perfect so I was thinking maybe I tell you this story and that helps you.

oh I know maman, no need to explain dear. What is perfect is that I like this imperfect life. I enjoy writing about it too, in my own way of course ;)
