sugary sweet deceptions

every day
an avalanche of
selfies
carefully filtered
proper angles
illusions
twice daily
a series of
vignettes
fabricated delicately
to push the
delusion that
she wishes to cast
bragadaccio in
fictional tones
selling a version
of herself
for the adoration
not welling up
within her
in this deliberately
manicured yet
patently false
social persona
she looks for love
unwilling to see
she is a figment
of self made
fantasies trying
too hard to be
something she is not
all in the hope
the world adores her
half as much as
she would lead you
to believe she does
for everyone else
ignoring the truth
by layering
filter after filter
until the truth
is lost in the
avalanche of
self promotion told
in sugary sweet
deceptions
