Perfect Life

Perfect Life

I pin my hopes and dreams
on a cork-less board
and watch them fall
empty and unfulfilled
to the floor below

Time after time I wonder,
was there a hiccup
in my biological make up
convincing me to believe
things that will never be?

In my mind’s eye is a vista
of a life of perfection
One I am meant to be living
But it never becomes reality
Patience stretched to snapping

Disillusioned but not beaten
I continue to pin hopes and dreams
wherever they might adhere
Because one day, perhaps
something will eventually stick
