Twisted ideals

Beautiful picture
paragon of perfection,
paint brush strokes
carefully made in each section.
To the eye it holds,
value of sorts,
model of drawing,
embodiment of art.
Onlooker without knowing
blinded by the shine,
by the perfection
of each line,
realise not the picture
is much more than it seems.

He can’t see beyond it’s paragon nature
a deeper look that would reveal
what his eyes see isn’t real
it may just be the way
to fool people eyes,
people brain,
it may just
well be
Dorian Gray.
