You took me by surprise;
The flowery grin brewing on your lips
Had more than what met the eye.

The cold monsoon breeze
Flushed in through the blinds
Sweeping with it your breath ;
A Light inebriating pang Of hooch and conspiracy of betrayal.
You made me feel nauseated.

Your gaze no longer seemed to hold mine
Instead, they escaped in obvious stealth.
Searching, scrutinizing, seeking
Shelter in daft alibis.

You draped me in colours of deception
And the emotionless tears that crept from your eyes
Couldn’t as much as wash them away
And I was left wailing in a veil
Of my own broken trust and ruptured faith.
