Charade

Charade

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

Things are never what they seem

"
                                                      
                                                      Charade

Take off your mask and end this charade,
Wrap me in your arms as the music fades,
Let me know heaven if only this once,
To  be the belle of the ball that leaves everyone stunned.

In your arms I'm beautiful and worthy of you,
Alone I wonder what did I do,
To deserve someone who sees me as such,
When I look in the mirror I don't see  this much.

I am but a plain,ordinary girl,
And  you are Casanova a man of the world,
Who claims to have found his anchor in me,
And been cured from his need to be restlessly free.

I choose to believe in happy ever after,
Even though I've navigated many a disaster,
I will be Snow or Belle and tame the beast,
If not in reality in my dreams at least.

Hey Vidya--long time, long time--fine job,I think most people think this way--except I'm not a girl, and don't call me Shirley!

could have gone so many different ways with "Charade" ... honest romantic insecure and wavering on the trust it takes ... my wish on the star is that dreams do come true ... such a delicate belle ... so very worthy ... enjoyed reading and the fairie tale aura ;)

You really took me to this ball my dear, it had a funny rhyme, I enjoyed and it did read so smooth.

Thank you Troy you are very kind :)
First of all, the flow was perfect. I was rocking myself while reading it. In a lull of your words. Fantastic. Second, the love boat has left the port! Haha! This is so romantic and beautiful while still holding that edge of caution. Those waves can get rocky!

Beautiful pen, my dear patootie! I've missed reading your work! xo :)

Aww shucks nah...has somebody been taking a dip in the sea of love? This poems sound full of newfound relationship and promise, inspiration possibly for this piece of ambrosia. I hope so Vid...I don't know too many people who would deserve it more. The was refreshing and made me smile.

Thank you AA :)
this is fanastic...it flows off the tongue when read aloud...and i really love the theme....

even if it is only in my dreams, only for one night...let me be the belle of the ball, cinderella in her glorious moment...you can keep the slippers, i'll just take one night in the carriage, and at the ball being appreciated, being thought of as beautiful.

damn good piece, my friend.

Pfft, pish and tush, you ordinary, not in this lifetime!

To answer your question, I think you're pazzo, but in a creative way, you portray the feelings of so many, so aptly with your inky offerings.....well said!

Love the charade concept..tame that beast! :)
