Breaking

Pristine

You were never jaded Never worn down Or torn after all these years Artwork standing intact  Workmanship like you is slowly fading extinct  Ever since sixteen candles decorated your cake You've reminded me of the Sistine Chapel You were pristine battles where bullets of sweat and paint landed exactly where they were meant to.
