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!

      She reminded me of Trixxy and Lexxy.

        Yes now you mention it. Council workers are working round the clock repairing the road so the girls can get back to work. How considerate…….

      She looks like Le Pen with a different hair style.
