There is no time
Only a memory

Our smiles are frozen
Captured and printed
Colors enhanced
Flaws corrected

Immaculate
Eyes glittering in the
Artificial sunshine
Toes in gritty sand
Bleached white

Arms around each other
A ruse of affection
A white lie
To make life sweeter
With a bitter aftertaste

Manufactured beauty
False perfection

The camera flashes
Whirs

We pull away
