The Dress

Slinky green silk cut dangerously high. 
Skin pale as milk; a glimpse of white thigh.
Swinging and clinging to hips that sway,
Thin fabric skimming; legs on display.

Shining gold hair, swept up in soft waves.
Florid yet fair: bare shoulders, smooth planes.
Sending bold glances, sneaking smug smiles,
Dangling chances with feminine wiles.
 
I must confess, without guilt or regret,
I wore this dress just to make you sweat.
I must confess, this is all a ruse -
I wore this dress just to torture you.

    At 78, Heather it is not fair to torture the elderly, but such a great job of writing. I forgive you. Outstanding and flows gently. Good Write.

    It may seem that way, but there is method to our madness - when we get burned, we find creative ways to burn right back!

    I agree with Isaiah- love the stressed syllables. This is sexy- but in a very classy fashion! Well done my darling :)

    So this is what you have been up to so that you forgot to check your inbox! I like how you start lines with stressed syllables, as unstressed seems to be more popular. (Soupmail.)

    And now I lost my trust in you

    Um, Heather...did you ever take the time to consider the fact that you might be torturing others as well?...I am very disappointed in you...how could you?..I'm an old man and my heart...

    Haha I'm sorry, David. Next time I'll add a warning at the beginning of my poem. "Men beware" ;)
