The Veil That Covered Her Face - Poem by RIC BASTASA

That veil was the first symbolism
Of her lies, it covered
The truth of her origin,

Her face underneath, you never really
Saw the truth of her eyes,

You were blinded by the cloth
You were tempted by the part that was still covered,

When the veil was lifted
It was then that you saw, the truth, of what was felt,

You wanted to back out,
And stop the ceremony of a commitment

But there were lots of people in the church
Ready to clap their hands, after the much awaited kiss

You kissed her, and the people clapped in
Jubilation of your beginnings

You did not really mean it,
But it was too late; you have already sealed the contract

With that kiss and all the people in the church clapped their hands
The rest in your life to come shall be without the participation
Of your senses.
