Everything Perfect Today 

#MiracleChallenge – Week 3 : Writing Prompt no. 2

I put on a brave face today

I dressed up, put on makeup 

I look perfect today. 
I won’t be brought down,

I am not going to cry or frown,

I’m in a perfect mood today. 


I take on the streets 

I walk like I own the block. 

It’s behind me, trying to mock me 

But I don’t care, this feeling of freedom is too sweet. 
It has been long 

Since I could finally back up one of my decisions 

Today was the perfect day 

And I didn’t even have to lit a candle 

Didn’t have to pray 

To keep that dark ball away. 

The first raindrop 

Then more and more 

The dark ball is increasing, 


“You forgot your umbrella 

As expected you can’t do a thing right… ”

I start doubting, 


Bow down and take the road back. 
And now my perfect dress, 

So bright, it competed with the sun

So white, it could be used as light 

Is now soaked, dull and tainted

By the rain, by the dark ball behind me 

And mostly by me 

Because once again I betrayed me.
But I looked perfect today 

And it was a perfect day
