I

 

Perfection

Is in the dead man

Who is as no more

 

As peace.

 

He married life

And she broke her vows,

Now he is here

 

Perfectly free

With ties to here

 

Cut free.

 

His words live without

Essence nor presence

 

And his face fades

From apparent appearances.

 

II

 

Perfection

Is in the broken heart

Of a man wronged

 

By her.

 

He is perfectly aware now

That women lie.

 

They tried to see eye

To eye but it was like

They were both blind,

 

Perfection is in

His perfectly

Broken

Heart.

 

III

 

Perfection

Is in the mind

Of a madman who is

Perfectly unaware of

 

Songs of sorrow nor

Poems of pain that flow

 

Through life--

 

He is as free as

A slave and health

 

Can not find him.

 

But he is perfectly

Carefree and lives through

Everyday playing hide-and-seek

With his lover,

 

Sanity.
