Dorian lived a beautiful life, and was considered by many as the happiest and luckiest man on earth. He had a monogamous relationship with an adoring boyfriend, worked in a glamorous field (the theatre), traveled and spoke various languages — he even had a popular blog, read and enjoyed by many.
What everyone didn’t know was that Dorian kept a painting of himself hidden away in the attic which showed the ravages — the real feelings — he carried inside. He didn’t dare show it to anyone — not even his lover. With time, he began to notice how the painting changed, grew lines and darker hues, while his image to the outside world remained the same.
This blog is my way of finally telling Dorian’s real story.
