Us, From the Realization Til Now
Soaked souls in wine.
Dizzy, tingling hearts fall behind.
Our moment's trump all else; rebuilds lost time.
Ignite, our connection is flint.
We dance 'til dawn.

Yet meaning so much more, or may be less
To each our own devious end
Tower of Babel raised
Is it not just

Could not recommend it.
A sad excuse

A mask
Left without face
Guarded a man with scars
Kept him in lonely seclusion
The public made him a brutal nightmare
Took a matrimony with shadows
Evolved into a myth
Story of hate
A mask...

Too expensive
Buy coats for the children
I will wear mine another year

My husband talked me into it
Beauty personified
If you insist

Maybe earthly glimpse of heaven
Beautiful, magnificent opulence,
Bringing much glamour to my guests
Tiny glittering orbs
Flashy sequins
