Fame

I was a lesion of contrast.
A welcome tumor under your skin.
When you turned bronze from sweat alone,
I stood beside you.
The content was obvious,
And I was part of it.
Now we are older.
Your skin has turned pink,
Left you a pale, spongy toy,
Admired,
An easy target
For random interpretations.
