Perfect is for Losers

as the faint thumping of a beating heart enters the room

she

        begins

                      to cry

her

             heart

is in no place to undergo stress

 

 

 

this is not stress

 

the emotion bursting from her chest cannot be contained with a 

simple smile

 

a

   simple

                 smile

                            comes seven months later

when the love of her life

                       greets her for the

                                              first time
