Perfection, The Constant Chase

I want you


I don't know how to have you


In my eye line


But never in my grasp


Pushing for the future


Losing it to my past


All the lines should join


All the dots to be dotted


Smooth out the bumps


Remove those that are knotted


 


Please tell me when I can have you


Let me know when you arrive


Maybe I can slow down now


And no longer strive


 


Tired and weary


It goes by so quick


All so blurry


I feel incredibly sick


Like a deep searing infection


I need, I want,


I crave perfection.


 


 


 


This is how everyday feels, like nothing I ever do is "good enough" to me, not to others but to me. I am in a constant competition with myself to better myself and so a lot of things I start I do not get finished due to worry of it not being perfect. I seem to have it in my mind, if it's not perfect why bother becuase the people who see it will only see the mistakes. Does anyone else get this annoying circle going on too? I hope you enjoy my little poem/song.
