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

Well - it's somber, ee. Can't really say it quite grabs me, yet it won't quite leave me alone. Good work.
