Unexisting flawless people,
that you make up in your mind,
that you judge for just a picture,
but there’s nobody of that kind.

Even though you know that,
You can’t help but long
being as perfect as a picture,
that doesn’t have anything wrong.

You tear yourself down,
feeling like imperfection feels your body,
until you finally realize
that you invented that story.

The fantasy where perfection is real,
where your Prince Charming lives,
who you hope one day you’ll find,
but with the longing feeling sticks.
