The Color of Fascination

by dilutedjoy

this fixation is of reluctant value
forced onto the auction block without
explanation and left naked

exposed for the world to see how it
hypnotizes without penitence
and calls it playful seduction

(teenage flirtation at its finest)

can it even recall genuine feelings of
good intention?

ive always believed that its siblings,
passion, devotion, and loyalty
shouldve taken lessons from older

sister obsession.
(not likely, being that shes still
stuck staring at the ceiling with a
broken heart)

but the young see through verdant eyes
which we tend to on a daily basis.
unaware that weeds are slowly beginning

to creep in and threaten the vibrant

nature of ignorance.
at first glance (if unhindered)
the realization is dismissed as candid
but if you were to see past the smoke

and mirror affiliation
the illusion isnt as splendid as the

animated by our reverence
animated by our wishes
but never colored
