Artifice Of The Artificer (Paint By Numbers)

Vibrant hues spill onto a saturated canvas

Blending ebullience with perfect despondency

An untimely exit of all shades sombre and dim

At length bring about the long awaited effect

Those who thought they’d seen the last of us

Fail to guise discontent but such is their tendency

Possessing an unnatural affinity to soak in the grim

Are craving eyes that forage for human defect

Paint was not meant to stand the test of time

Each new coat only proves palliative

Until little can be likened to the original

True Colours wane into distant memory

Surreptitious in their efforts

Vainly toiling away to thwart restoration

But old dreams have resurfaced

Leaving the finale up to vivid imagination
