Perfect Imperfection

Written by August E.

At night I lay my head and dream,
That perfect Imperfection
Visions of us together on my screen,
My heart’s deep dissection

That deep desire still not mine,
That perfect Imperfection
I pray that it come true in time,
My mind’s clever deception

I touch your skin but can not feel,
That perfect imperfection
Awaken to remember it’s not real,
My body’s only temptation

We say the words but none are heard,
That perfect imperfection
You are not mine the dreams have blurred,
My soul’s true connection
