imperfections in you I can not change
why were those things I once loved in the beginning
some even made me smile and laugh
imperfections in me now
why did I think they were all fine yesterday
some even made me feel smug and pretty
imperfections in this world
why did we ever feel safe and invincible
some days we even played and danced
imperfections we all live with today
are yesterdays memories
and tomorrows forgiving
~Go ahead and break me open
I still have treasures inside to behold~
(I made this yesterday out of frustration. I did it through blinding tears of rejection and I ended up smiling at it's beautiful message to me.)

how things, indeed can change with time, eh? or at least our perceptions.
this delve very deep into the core of something, clearly.
it did for me, too.
i think i have been feeling very retrospective recently, and this summed it up perfectly for me, my love.
stay cool, groovy girl.
