You gaze Upon Me

You gaze upon me, and I gaze back,
My paint is worn with signs of crack.
All these years you stand in line,
Piercing eyes perceiving to define.
Underneath this oil I never age,
My life laid bare on an open page.
Though I am a woman of fame,
Protective screen hides my frame.
I see disappointment in your eyes,
When you realise I am small in size.
I’ll be here when you are gone,
Through artist eyes, I always shone.
My name is Enigma with a smile,
and you may know me for a while.
