The Perfection Song

Oh Mrs Carver next door, she overdoes her perfume.
I’ve spoken to her several times. 
“Less is more Dearheart, less is more”.
A little less Cologne and more faith.
But every Sunday the fragrance wofts through my window.
I guess she doesn’t see Perfection the way I do.

And my X husband, now there’s a gem, a sapphire,
A diamond at the top of the tiara.
“No you don’t get to bash me anymore.”
Don’t look so disappointed sweetness.
I guess you don’t see Perfection the way I do.

Oh God forgive me,
I do see the Lightning fairy in Love,
I do hear the Angels singing.
I feel the warmth the Sun.
I guess you and I see Perfection the same way.

    read a couple of your poems. they are all expressions and extensions of you. you are talented. though you chose to negatively critique my work, i choose to compliment yours. like i always do, i urge you to keep writing....no matter the genre the poem is written or expressed in. May God Bless....

    Learn one thing before it's too late. Criticising someone's poetry is not a criticism of the person.
