Masquerade is now shattered,
Pieces and shards- now scattered.
What used to be a shield is now gone,
Lost in the darkness; end chase on its own.
What used to be the reward of the hunt,
Realization; it has always been shallow and blunt.
Masquerade is now broken, obscurity is now gone,
Ground beneath feet- now shaken, temperance is forlorn.
