purchased artwork

a photograph of abstract black and white artwork on a canvas

a character projection
the portrait of a lover
i stopped to gaze upon you
trying to decode your message
that was never meant for me
why
i conclude that your illusion will always remain only my perspective
but i find my curiosity lurking for more
lost in the world of what this all might mean
searching for the truth
it’s forever just beyond my reach
conflicting me 
my ego says i am deserving of the truth
and your thoughts are mine to keep
but i know that i am owed nothing
reality cuts deep
here i am projecting everything onto something that will never change
