You live in my cavities 
What makes me flawless are my own flaws and mistakes There is no better way to learn than to fail My biggest quality is my persistency Wich I wouldn´t have if I hadn't failed before

  Freak  twisted, strange  disturbing, unnerving, disgusting  demented, insane, fantastic, beautiful  thrilling, amazing, dazzling 
Doleful, limpid eyes importuned me with questions, Prolonging eventide's closure, our pathways in digresson. Seldom averse to evening repartee, my departure halted
Why does the idea of perfection exist,
I struggle at school
Fear paralyzes me From the wrinkles of my skin to the crevices in my bones. She leaves me in a  s t a n d s t i l l  Helpless, desperately hoping For some Messiah or miracle cure
