This poem was written for the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge, click on the link:
The challenge was to write something containing the phrases “red-painted lips” and “Silken Hair”.
Here was my attempt:
With her long silken hair
and her body laid bare
she had a beauty that none could eclipse.
She had eyes of bright green
that you’d just never seen
a scarlet smile with red-painted lips.
But alas it would seem
it was only a dream
as I sit up in bed all awake
That’s the last time I look
at a romantic book
before sleep, now I know my mistake.
