A portrait

To conceal

I couldn’t possibly pretend to be someone else
Yet here I stand, yet again
With a fake smile
Cried out eyes well made-up
Stains on dress covered by draped scarf
And bags
The bags under my eyes concealed
Not to forget
The suitcase packed just hours before
Behind a shield of make believe
And love
Or so I hope.

A beautiful lie

That day when he spoke of my work
Having no idea it was mine
That day when he spoke of me
Having no idea I was she
And thus today
I wouldn’t even dare
To tell him who I am.

A star

The more I long for it
The further it seems
A star in a galaxy
Five thousand and more miles away

A confession

There are words dedicated
To every man I’ve ever loved
Be it for a second
Or for an hour
Be it for a month
Or for a year
There are words written
To every man I ever loved
Be it for today
Or for tomorrow
Or for the man
Far, far away

So if it makes sense
If there’s a recollection
A memory
A feeling
A thought provoked
Consider yourself welcome
Be you forgotten
Or just arrived
For there are words for every lover
And the next
Who may come my way.

An illusion

They say
Love does not simply disappear
But how does one know
If it was ever there
In the first place?
