Imperfect Perfection

Saucy smile
pert lips
eyes sparkle
look over the shoulder
grinning
knowing my worth.
Dancing under the moon
stars shining bright
swirling
lost in delight.
Fireflies light up the night
strolling
jasmine perfumes the air
romance is high
or at least
in my mind.
Diving through sunlit waves
grit of sand between my toes
watching seagulls dip and soar
serene smile on my face.
I am smart.
I am beautiful.
I am the wild beast within.
I am strength.
I am dreams come true.
Look twice
that is what you should do
when I walk by
for this opportunity
this beauty you see
like a wisp of smoke
curling to the sky
will dissipate
leaving within
a void
where my comfort could have been.
