Disguise

I thought I knew you and so I

Dropped the façade, that measured guard;

Protection from enemy eyes –

 

Then through a trembling night we waltzed

A shy courtship in the shadows;

You gaze, though soft, never wavered

 

My hardened heart began to heal

As gently I believed again

In a love that lives without lies –

 

But something changed, the spark smothered

Quick as mist falls in the mountains;

All alone, as before, I wept

 

And then I knew it wasn’t true

That all along it had been you

With your soul shrouded in disguise
