Underneath

Sometimes this burden is too much–
The onus on the perfect one to be an example of relationship, parent, lover?

The shining star,
The ‘good one’–
How is the weight of such goodness
borne without
suffocation,
without collapsing under the
foundation of sophistry?
Surely the cracks in the facade
are meeting around the middle,
soon the adulations will
break-away
because my bare and black soul
has finally reached
the air.
