*The Pedestal of Unrealistic Expectations*
by Amber Moonstone 8/23/06
I am your pedestal
You leave me there
To be perfect in your eyes,
Only to stare
Into the Abyss
of my wonderment
as to how I came to be
in this world of torment.
I can only feel the weightlessness
of my body and soul
and how much
It has taken a tremendous toll.
I am only human
Of flesh and bone
Never did I ever
think you wouldn't leave me alone.
I thought it was love
but it has turned
that has burned
My desires and love
to cold embers
Of remorseful thoughts
that resonate trembers
I cannot continue
to be left up high
Only being adorned,
On that pedestal in the sky.
Pedestals are not real;
walking on solid ground
is the key to everlasting
love and wholeness abound.
Author's Notes: Have you ever been put up on a pedestal? It isn't a very good place to be. There is no room for imperfection; and as humans we are imperfect in our perfect ways..... humanism is non-perfectionism!
Peace, light and non-perfection love,
Author's Location: Middletown, Connecticut
