Fashionably Deadly

Movie star eyes Perfect caramel skin Screech. That would be too perfect. Change that to something pastier Alabaster maybe The monster in the mirror Smiled with her green eyes Vivian Leigh maybe? She watched her face transform But she added the caramel And she looked more like Sophia Loren Maybe brown eyes? She suggested The magic mirror was losing patience Make up your mind it said. Did it really matter What you look like When you lure a man to his death? The mirror’s grin widened. She patted her auburn curls in place And picked up her cape. She was ready for the hunt.

Man. When did this happen? I did not even know! What? I am so sad I missed this!
Date: 11/30/2019 1:05:00 PM
Ouch!!! Sounds like many in the World. Trying to be someone they are not. Which is the wrong Attitude to have. To be liked, first you should like who You are. To trap someone, for the sake of saying you can. Wow!!! Not a nice thing to do at all. Congratulations Caren, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy
