First Portrait of Love

Written by: Stephen Parker

Love's dawning in pixels bright
Endeared moment time did spite
Carefree minds with little foresight
Stilled in passion's ephemeral flight
Trendy pastels brimming with delight
Framed in glassy case so erudite
Glowing expressions that innocence did ignite
Now fatuous visages that only illusions highlight
Tender seconds shallow bond did requite
Token portrait skewed in maturity's plight
Colorful shades glossing pubescent rite
Now dulled glaze shadows a deeper insight
Two, burgeoning libidos sharing the 
limelight
Now silted images that concupiscence did blight
