Perfect masks

Of porcelain

And ceramic;

The coloured feathers


Brightening the room.

Eyes meet and hold,

Lust is sparked

But love is stronger,


And we dance and twirl

Until dawn and far beyond

Into the night

For centuries and decades;


We are timeless

In the stars

Of each other's eyes.

Champagne glasses


May glow golden

Under chandeliers

Of diamonds and glass,

But our hearts united


Spark a whole universe

In our gazes.

But alas, love goes no further

Than one song and dance;


Eternity was packed

Into a song of sunshine

And brilliance,

Leaving us breathless


And in  tranquility.

And although our heart breaks,

We have loved for one dance

That dance was enough.


Masks may hide our expressions

But never our hearts;

Beyond facades lie

All the answers we've searched for.


I'm breaking constantly, continuously and always, it's just that nobody sees it - but I'm fine with that, as long as there's something to fix me, too. ~ Me

Eternity was packed into a song of sunshine - great line!

I can see the masquerade ball very clearly and everything going on because of your wonderful descriptions! I like your continuous returning to love in this piece as well. It really gives an added depth to this poem.
