Perception of Perfection

a poem of sorts…

To be the epitome of perfection… an illusion or disillusion or was it that she so wanted it to be real? to be a hope.. a wish.. a dream.. subtle changes of a perception that has not changed or altered who she is from within… a weakening of the resolve slips into and around to hold close in an embrace that will not let go…

Shimmering light that’s revealed to envelope that carries her forward in momentum to a place that is comfortable… secure… unapproachable as the withdrawing of the soul becomes complete… subtle knowing smile that tug at the corners of the mouth…

Eyes that gleam with a plethora of emotions that they are unreadable but oh so aware… serenity settles within and the shadows reach out in another embrace… to have one in their lives who touched so deeply is better to have not known them at all…

And as the night is chased by the dawning of the day realization comes in understanding that what was once thought will no longer come to fruition… settling for the moment in merely knowing gentle borne entity that reached out and shed another light…

The smile is still there and the feelings within become locked away… lingering beneath the surface to burn once more as images seen and kept close in remembrance are all that remain… soft sigh in defeat and the head lowers in contemplative retrospection…

Release comes in slow motion and another realization flows with the tide… perfection is perception and the imagination that reigns is but a single step forward as a milestone in self recognition is reached… to be and to become is all that matters… and the subtle smile brightens…
