Pattern of your intricate, etched on mine;
embossed on soft, was love imprinted.
Deep engravings with a rock or a few,
Reflected a mirage; castle of fallacy.
Springs blossoming on pillars of vain,
Flash of false struck a nerve in me…
My delusion shone, alas, for a moment!
Bedazzled n blinded, I staggered; then fell.
The ground dissolved into dust!
