I see the crack in that tranquil face
I sense the darkness invading our space
Forlorn love is set for its final test
And failure is what it will achieve at best

The fading colours of the fall
Turning auburn with no shade of anything I recall
The hue spreads with your increasing disbelief
Burning faith’s tint is now on the fallen leaf

Blinded by the glittery mask of flirt
I fell into your arms like your desert
But you played with my feelings like a broken doll
If only had I sensed the devil you were behind that wall

I am holding on to the illusion of the love masquerade
For reality is grave and I would do all I can to evade
I know it all just slipped away
But letting go is so much more than I can say

I see the darkness now seeping out of you
Your poker face turning all my nightmares true
‘Cause hidden is a hungry sadistic smile
Singing in silence - this one is down another will be mine!

-Vaisakhi Mishra


  1. I am holding on to the illusion of the love masquerade
    For reality is grave and I would do all I can to evade ! !
    these two lines are just awesome :)
    very beautifully described..really touching !!

    1. Thanku so much Shruti...Glad u liked it..:)

  2. It's often so difficult to identify the face behind the mask, and when you do, it's just too late ... very beautifully written buddy :-)

  3. Sometimes your intuition tells you something's not right, but your heart doesn't wanna listen. And then you get hurt.

    The bigger mistake however, would be to not learn from your mistakes.

  5. ..Good one!!!...loved the rhyming Vaisakhi..
    ..modern day love is comes wearing a mask of deceit,lies and conditions..we do sense something wrong before taking the plunge...even then like moths,we are ready to jump into the fire of the time we consumes us..
