Illusion By Gustriana Maryam Nurfirdani Mukti

A neighing white horse was standing brawny Showing his chest conceitedly Smiling and waving hands as a Royal Arrogant yet elegant It would hypnotise all eyes which were looking at

The heir of eagle eyes The heir of beautiful fur Stamping its feet Waking up the universe

Accosting the femine The girl who was stunned Living in mirage It just bruised her sincere heart deeper and deeper

Running he was then To shake the earth of Adam And running fast and left her behind Oh, the girl was stunned and Once again, was looking forward to another heart Another heart which went by with the wind
