Flawed


We’re both flawed diamonds in rough formation
Maybe that’s our connection
Without a microscope our imperfections are visible
Seen with the naked eye
Defects from birth created in the womb
Blemished DNA
Errors we’re afraid to acknowledge
Doing so might give validation to what others see
Our failings, we point fingers at one another
Shifting the blame
We’re flawed the damaged reflection of
Two individuals on a collision course to disaster
Enabler of addictions
Crippled by no intervention
The end of the road is death
A black rose lay to rest on cold concrete
All flaws seep back into the earth
