    The Perfectionist.

    I wish for perfection,
    to grace me with its open arms,
    or rather let me run for it,
    I know it needs uneasy sacrifices,
    which l will be deemed to give,
    though no one will notice it,
    my mind will get addicted,
    each and every time,
    I turn into a perfectionist.

    Yes, it is all about, getting addicted
    to perfection without flaws,
    to perfection without failures,
    to perfection with all the risk.

    And still, I wish for perfection,
    to meet me in real-time,
    or rather let me reach for it,
    I know it removes all the scars,
    I had before in my life,
    though no one will notice it,
    my mind will get addicted,
    each and every time,
    I turn into a perfectionist.

    Yes, it is all about, getting intoxicated,
    making you feel better,
    making you feel shrewd,
    making you less human.

    And still, I wish for perfection,
    to get me the contentment I need,
    each and every time,
    I turn into a perfectionist.
