Too novel and new
Too unique to stay you
Elements scraped, refined, and tinctured
Hues boiled, extracted, and decantered
Not added for the benefit of design,
But an arms race to keep it mine.
Fighting for relevance.
They wanted more.
Color seeping from your skin,
Mimicked till water thin
Concentrate the shades to make them real
Super-saturated, lost all appeal.
Because the colors made you blind
Burning rods and cones to stay defined
Losing all elegance
You give them more.
