Love’s Masquerade

love's masquerade

I tasted love’s promise on parched lips
I rejected truth my eyes could not see
and even as betrayal sank cold on my tender skin
I refuted the portrait renegade emotions painted

Ah, love’s masquerade
I danced with a broken heart

When the world stopped spinning
and that music stopped
I heard a new tune
I smelled the promise of more

out there, somewhere

As I vetoed the pull of the imposter
and found the future unmasked
love’s promise tasted sweet
Wrapped in swathes of red on a blank canvas
