A Leper Of Love


The intricate veil of love
Of one from the thespian clan
Is a cocoon of one's own conception
Diluting in the ripple of time
To unearth the essence
Behind the embroidery of the mask
A soul wanting to be loved
For who he is
A leper of love

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
