THE PIGMENTS OF A LIE

BeFunky_null_7.jpg

Black whispers

Settle like dust

A mystery

Ebony noir

Born upon

Needy tongues

The truth

Concealed

Hidden within

Painted shadows

Deception

Carefully applied

To a canvas

Using only

The pigments

Of a lie

  1. The pigments of a lie
    Brash neons
    Bold pastels
    Bright glitter and
    Deep shadows
    Skilfully applied
    Hiding rough edges
    Jagged concepts
    And flaws
    Engulfing the original
    Making it palatable
    Rendering it acceptable
    Desirable
    So desirable
    And worthwhile
    Dazzling beauty
    Stilling the masses
    Making them stare
    Making them stupid
    Believing the lies
    Caressing the pigments
    With greedy eyes
    Letting their gaze
    Drop down
    Follow on
    Imagine
    Linger
    Utterly bewitched
    By the science
    And the art
    of Skin-Deep.
