Masquerade


 

Masquerade

Brilliant disguise

Such sweet pretence

Whispered to the night

Hello there,

Secret lover

Mysterious eyes

Dance with me

Together, darling

 We can play

At a beautiful game of

Masquerade

~*~

Shadow moments

Locked in a dream

Hide the letters

Bury the key

~*~

Such a lovely lie

Woven of

Shattered dreams

And broken hearts

Of wondering eyes

A stolen glance

~*~

Find yourself tangled

In an embrace

With a masked stranger

Hiding your face

Conscience screaming

Don’t stop now

Heart beat speeding

We’re going down

~*~

Hold me tonight

May I have this dance?

Be with me

Breathe with me

Your one last chance

Dancing in a bed of roses

Blood red and alive

To the beat

Of my heart

In sync with yours

Kiss me, darling

Tonight is ours

~*~

Please don’t fall

I can’t catch you

Please don’t fall

I swear I won’t

~*~

Hide and seek

With deceit

Liar, liar

Heart on fire

Oh, what a wonderful

Burning desire

~*~

Forever tortured by

Ruby red guilt

Sworn to eternal

Secrecy

Cross my heart

And hope to die

My lips are sealed

Are yours?

~*~

Goodbye darkness

Light is returning

Roses burning in a

Pool of blood

Tear stained clouds

Grey and heavy

Among the

Gold glitter sunrise

On the horizon

Of your memories

~*~

You may regret this

But you’ll miss me,

I know

You may regret this

But you’ll always

Remember me

As if it was

Yesterday

~*~

Darling,

Don’t speak

Don’t break the spell

For now, I must go

It will be as if

I never existed

I promise I’ll go

Quietly

~*~

Please don’t fall

I can’t catch you

Please don’t fall

I swear I won’t

~*~

Underground

Going down

Smash the trophy

Hide your crown

Come out from behind

The mask

Go back to the twisted

Façade you call

Your life

~*~

Always, always

Scarred by shame

But listen to me

When I say:

Happiness is bitter-sweet

Pleasure is temporary

Pain is forever

And love is nothing

But a heartless a game

Designed for fools

And idiots who believe

In fairy tales

~*~

Please don’t fall

I can’t catch you

Please don’t fall

I swear I won’t

~*~

Shadow moments

Locked in a dream

Hide the letters

Bury the key

~*~

Masquerade

Brilliant disguise

Such sweet pretence

Whispered to the night

Farewell,

Secret lover

Mysterious eyes

Our dance has come

To an end

I’m sorry, darling

 All we ever were

Was a childish game of

Masquerade

I loved this piece! "Masquerade" to me, is like a game of hide-and-seek and you've captured it so brilliantly here, but in your own way, emotions, and depth. It was a long piece, but wonderful, nonetheless! = ]

It was really long, but I liked it. High five for awesomeness. I do not know if that is a word. Oh well. Lol. I liked it. Lots of details, but I felt there was a bit of repeation in some parts. Other wise, it was quite entertaining.

This was quite good. In the middle I started wondering what it might sound like as lyrics, and in my head ((With my made up music abilities)) it sounded quite good. Keep on writin' :)
