Preservation

Everyone loves the idea of being written about,

when it captures the beauty

of their love,

but when the subject transitions

to jealousy,

malice,

naiveté,

selfishness,

immaturity,

the desire for their actions

to be preserved in a piece vanishes,

for they only want to be painted

in a rose-colored light,

rather than their honest truth

being reflected back at them
