I am perfect until I am human (NaPoWriMo Day 2)

I am blond

until my roots start to show.

I am tall

until I slip out of my heels.

I am slender

until I peel off my Spanx.

I am busty

until my push-up is gone.


I have porcelain skin

until I wash my makeup off.

I have 20/20 vision

until I take my contacts out.

I have pearly teeth

until I stop bleaching.

I have ruby nails

until they get chipped.


I am graceful

until I trip.

I am smart

until I goof.

I am funny

until I flop.

I am loved.

I am still loved.


The prompt for today was a combination of NaPoWriMo’s “write a poem that tells a lie” and Robert Lee Brewer’s “Write a bright poem. Write a dark poem.” So the first line was a natural. 😉

    • Thanks, Pam! I needed a good creativity kick in the you-know-what. The nice thing about writing a poem a day is that you can relax a little and not worry about making each poem “perfect.” Plus, I like the camaraderie! 🙂
