Kyrielle Poem Contest Entry

Crafted Ruse

by DragonSkulls

Beneath the veil of crafted ruse,
within the ink I dip my quill.
Through countless paths that I may choose
I'll freely follow my own will.

I could be king or loving queen
beneath the veil of crafted ruse.
Perhaps a thief that hides unseen
or broken child with gang tattoos.

A temptress that so few refuse,
a soldier in the grips of war.
Beneath the veil of crafted ruse
I build the realms that I explore.

A pirate captain or his mate,
a poet lost within his muse.
I'm anyone that I create
beneath the veil of crafted ruse.
