Masquerade

Masquerade long poem

Well and as the music plays and everybody
Dances to Mozart inside, I stand out here
On the terrace all alone, outside.
All alone except for the owls, the moon and the stars
I might feel left out and down on myself
Wishing I was someone in there, someone other than
Myself but the night is young so who’s to say.
I just might not be going home all alone
Maybe I’ll meet the one, the one I’ve waited and
Dreamed of for so, so long, who knows but I guess
I won’t meet anyone if I don’t make my presence known
‘Cuz the night is still young and I wanna have
Some fun, after all it is a MASQUERADE BALL
And I should be having the time of my life, tonight…
Tonight I could dance with anyone and
Remain a stranger, a complete stranger if I really
Want to, but then again, tonight I could be in the arms
Of the one, the one who can see pass the mask
And into the eyes that can’t disguise the soul,
After all the eyes are the windows to the soul.
And if destiny rules, all my dreams
Will come true, you will know me and I will
Know you, tonight if destiny rules, if destiny
Rules, even for a little while here tonight
At this MASQUERADE, MASQUERADE BALL
There is a certain something magical
Happening here I haven’t felt since ’89, as you take
My hand my heart says this might be the one,
The one who will be holding your hand now
And for a lifetime, but I wouldn’t have known it
If I hadn’t swallowed my pride and
Danced one dance tonight here at this fairy
Tale, enchanted fairy MASQUERADE BALL!

Masquerade

Masquerade short poem

I looked in the mirror, exasperated eyes glared back at me. I couldn’t comprehend that exasperation, I failed to calm my curiosity. I bowed my eyes down, and thought for a moment, soon I recalled the way my day was

The Masquerade

The Masquerade long poem

He jumps, engages in acrobatic feats Drunken by coded chants and drumming Enraptured beyond mortal realm His ego tickled and heightened Gleefully he responds to each call Awed onlookers shudder and wonder At this creature with a monstrous aura With
