I saw you, a while back, smiling,
Blooming like yellow flowers of summers,
I saw, a frame, “Picture Perfect”,
One that I dreamed of, Always,

I saw you, Always, As an oasis,
In the dunes of My Deserted World,
I saw, a life, “Fulfilling”,
One that I believed I had, Till now,

But love, you couldn’t hold me
Beyond a few ticks,
Your eyes, lifeless, smiles artificial,
Mask of make-up hiding wrinkles,

Your soul, lost in the abyss of your past,
They don’t lie anymore, do they? Mirrors..?
