The Act of the Masked
by Amogha Pavithran
Bookmark and Share
  As usual the stolen glances,
Those again stole my heart.
I could neither express nor negotiate.
It all started with a smile.
The smile which made me forget everything.
The whole world around me just froze.
Only the smile remained,
Yet I couldn't bring it out.
The pain inside was unbearable.
But seeing him happy made me shut up.
I couldn't deliberately be the reason for his smile to disappear.
I wanted him to be mine forever,
Yet I couldn't make up my mind.
Many times I was about to tell,
But his face made me stop.
Neither could I tell nor act.
I just couldn't cheat him
With my untold feelings
And also couldn't hurt him
With my words,
And all I did was just act in front of him,
In front of everyone.
Betraying myself with this act of the masked.
