Masqueraded behind her mask, bejeweled
was her almond eyes, smokey grey
she glanced ’round the room
with a longing to just see him once.
Heart pulsating as the band played,
another toast of champagne.
Suddenly, he caught her eye…
He pressed his way through the crowd
only to see her mask tumble to the ground
as she ducked through the doorway.
