Masquerade by Anna Kapungu

A femme fatale 
I played the character
Recount stories of deceit
To win your heart
Blonde hair, pink lips, reflection of a picture
A haze, I walked into your Earth
Disguised as a desperate child
Who thirsts for water
Hunger for power of possession
Possession of your heart
An act the drama of Shakespeare
Profess love that was odious
Show of affection
With bile on my tongue
Hold no time for shame
Placed in a corner
The living hours gave me no choice
Living on hope and charm
Duplicity to gain the advantage
An illusion to prevail over your innocence
Your lack of vision
Earned your trust, your honesty 
Tears you shed for me
Fool, to think it was love
