Absent in leave ©

Modest Maiden carrying hidden restraint

Travel far to unburden love,

In masquerade absent of paint

The town is red; before you chose

Flight for fancy, expensive, and free

To meet, to toast upon a beach,

Friend to frank, and subtlety,

So close at home, but out of reach,

Debauched law of intermingling;

Same diffidence forces conformity

Depraved, you dance, avoiding their sins.

I hope you had the time of your life.

—–For when same ceiling stares back at thee

—–You’ll dream that same person again to be.
