Damn you

Don't you see?

I don't want to be perfect

I just want to be me

Living up to your expectations

Is not the life I need

I hate when people see me

It's not me they see

I'm up on some sort of pedestal

Way up in the clouds

If it weren't for how it'd upset you

I'd relish the fall down

I'd thrive in utter chaos

I'd love to see the mess

But seeing me would vex you

You who I love best

But I'm not your little princess

I'm not your china doll

I'm not the brave and selfless miss

In your eyes standing tall

I've never touched the ground

I've never been allowed to fall

I've never been the reckless girl

You wouldn't recognize at all

Damn you

Don't you see?

I don't want to be perfect

I just want you to finally see

The imperfectly

Perfect

Me
