Illusion

The glitter,
the shimmer.
The heels, 
the gloss.
A little laughter,
a whole lot of fun.
A flood of people,
breathless yet dancing.
They can't possibly stop and
defeat the music that blasts.
Even small things seem funny and
everyone is loved.
A lot of liquid and some fizz
but I spot smoke too.
Make-up is off by now,
and sweat trickling down.
One would think it won't end
But it's too soon....

The daylight brings with it,
some memories,
few regrets and
a whole lot of stories to tell.
But wasn't it all just an illusion after all?
