Shield of Perfection

Impenetrable shield of perfection
Flawless,
Do you let tears fall?
Or are you hardened,
Hiding behind a wall.

Impenetrable shield of perfection
Giving away nothing,
Sharing little thoughts and feeling,
Not saying what you mean
Hoping to remain unseen.

Impenetrable shield of perfection
You have some guessing,
I see you, part of you
Your perfection dismantles
As knowing you is prolonged.

Impenetrable shield of perfection
I’m holding the mirror up,
Can you see your reflection?
The light reflects and
fizzles out your flaws
no more hiding for you
Imperfection is seeping out your pores…
