wanna be perfect

teeth that are straight and white,
just the perfect height,
you look down to see a strange thing,
your shoes are far to tight.

eyes as blue as the sea,
hair as straight as can be,
but you are not perfect,
your breath made everyone flee.

I love this! There is almost a humour to the last line that really brings the poem through. Also, I like how the title is the opposite of how I believed the poem would be written. I assumed that it would be some girl talking about how everyone is perfect except for her, but it is actually about someone who seems perfect but has one flaw. Sorry, I'm rambling. I loved this! Would you read my poem, and comment if you have the time? I would love to hear what you have to say, since I respect your creativity. :) It's always nice to know what original minds think.
