Not What She Appeared to Be

When she walked into the room
I could feel my temperature rise.
She was the epitome of stylish
Her shoulder-length hair coiffed in squiggles
A glamorous representative of the halcyon days
Reminiscent of The Great Gatsby

Her visage took my imagination
To a fertile territory
Wherein we danced the night away
Ending in carnal bliss
As the sun breached the dark at dawn

But then a discordant note was played
When I discovered her true nature
She was not who or what she appeared to be

    Cue the appropriate Aerosmith song and ask that lady to dance 🙂 Love that you took a dive into poetry too!
