Love is told manifold
and many are fooled.

(She)Stepped into the street and
dropped a star when blink
Followed a crowd squeaking
Pearls fallen in the smile
smashed hearts of love at carts
Smirked at the other side of lips
Sleeves up and laughs up her sleeves
Paced in a catwalk
Placed footprints in vivid
Enthused mob traced through the heels
So mass in procession treaded fast
Fasten belt and Spellbound
Waited long at doorstep.

Love in masquerade
Back at greenroom
Unfastens her mask
Laughs up her sleeves
Costumes peeled off
Paled profile reflected age
That laughed at her in ease
And she peeped at them in amuse.
