Perfectly Imperfect For Me

Poem By Olivia Braun

I don’t want someone perfect…I don’t want someone who has it all
I dont want the shiniest tresure in the chest, I don’t want the best
I don’t want something that everyone wants, I don’t want a trophie
I want someone who is full of flaws, you know the ones that always trip and fall
Their hair isnt always in the right place, and they always make the weirdest face
Their style is their own, and they don’t demand to be placed on a thrown
They laugh at you, and all they do… Their lesser moments show how great they are
The way they cheer you up is something only they can do…
You don’t need a map to read them, you don’t need to be perfect to please them
It not to settle, its not to get the easy mark… Its wanting something that has a heart
The ideal of perfection is the stupidest thing around
To be perfect is to be personless…
It’s the mistakes, and being out of place that makes us who we are…
I don’t want it all… I want all someone is
Imperfectly perfect for me.

Comments about Perfectly Imperfect For Me

I love this. Really, it's great. The idea and the execution are just spot on. We all seem to be hooked on the media driven idea of the 'perfect' marriage, relationship, lover, friend, etc. All utter tosh, of course. Well written.

Lost To Find My Lot

Lost in a world, that scares me to death,
Lost in a crowd I’m losing my breath,
Lost as a kid, lost as an adult
I feel everything is falling apart and its my fault

If I Thought...

If I thought today would be the last time that I would see you I would hold on to you for a little longer.

If I thought that this would be the last time that I would ever talk to you I would make sure to hear everything that you wanted to say.


I wish I could figure out a way to say
How much pain you put me through that day
Just a kid who made mistakes
You took my love and threw it away

Ode To You

Day by day I feel your memorie fading away
I can not cry or understand why
you didn’t stay
But my heart is in no pain

Love You So...

Getting close and understanding so alike it’s uncanny
What do to as you leave?
Weep my self off to sleep?
How I miss our conversations

Sweet Temptations

Sweet temptations everlasting
One more glance unforgotten
Precious memories still surround
One more lesson not yet found
