There’s always that person you try to paint.
A vivid masterpiece for all to see.
Bright yellow smiles and deep red hearts
Perfect brush strokes that you can never be
Is it wrong to paint this picture of you?
Spend your days fixing the lines
Why can’t you stare at your lovely face
Instead of the artist behind?
Is it worth a dirty apron,
and wait- your eyes don’t look quite the same!
This face only admired from afar
Up close, only the paint remains
