Masquerade

Poem: Masquerade

***

ebony stars in a sable sky

wet my weary eyes

i long for you

my crimson dove

to brighten my world again

.

before you all was blues and greens

violet petals and sun

but since we met

my turncoat heart

bleeds black when you are gone

.

continue, wretched masquerade

char me through the wait

secret hearts

lovers’ arts

a path of glass we tread

.

torrid, our sequestered love

clawing at my soul

senseless fears

bleeding tears

till tender lips console

.

i long to rip the veil, proclaim!

true hearts for all to see

two souls shine

ending repine

masquerade fading…to memory

***
