Perfect

She's one of those silver screen cliches

Honey blonde hair

Boobs out

Head high

She's born with that innocuous wide-eye good-girl faith...

(Just another 21-century whore)

She puts on a charade of lip-gloss smiles and cheer-leading back-flips

Out of all the actors; she's the best one there.

Perfect, isn't she?

Oh, she's far from perfect

But everybody thinks she is.

Everybody expects her to be.

Perfect looks

Perfect grades

Perfect parents

Perfect boyfriend

She has the best of friends

Beautiful

Barbie Doll

Wide-eyed

Everybody wants to be her

She's the girl you'd die to be (Literally)

Faultless (apparently)

She's drowning, but everybody sees her breathing.

She feels like screaming

Cracking.

Mommy's a 'self-medicating' alcoholic

Daddy bring sluts home every night

Big Brother's smoking cannabis

Her Ken Doll is cheating on her...

...with her supposed best friend.

Secretly, they bitch about her.

And she can't take it anymore.

Society wins this war.

So she writes it on her Facebook:

Sorry,

I'm not perfect.

And she seizes the bottle of pills

And disappears

To a place where nobody cares

If she's perfect

Or not.
