Fishnets and Stilettos

Fishnets and Stilettos

A Poem by Alessander

I see you in your black corset
    Shiny as a raven’s claw
      Your hair
         Hips swerving
   Sipping a stiff drink
         In a dark corner
          Mascara thick
              Lipstick full
        In crimson bloom

        Plump lips - glazed eyes
           Fishnets and stilettos

                     Swaying

         Unto the dance floor
      Becoming one
  With the music
While unraveling yourself
       From our mortal fetters
                    Bone fingers
         Reaching, beckoning
      As you are enveloped

 By the strobe lights and fog

             Evaporating

   Only your pale silhouette remains
              On my tongue

Why do i get a feel that you spend most of the time observing ladies at the club :P

The last one was sipping beer.. and this one Sipping a stiff drink & dancing away :)

more than drinks i like the feel of the music so high...one gets lost in it...
never been a fan of silhouette on my legs..
but i do envy the ones who can dance on them..
(i rather have a relaxed leg than a broken one)

You have taken a photograph of this scene and turned it into words. Masterful stuff indeed.

Great imagery in describing the dancing lady. She becomes more seductive when her looks match the watchers desires. It can be mesmerising watching a beautiful woman dance. Your spirit goes on a journey with her. Enjoyed.

a very seductive woman that navigates her way through this scene expertly, almost instinctual, she'll be labelled a femme fatale but she is just a woman letting go of herself, either that or measuring her worth by the heads she'll turn. sexy piece

I like this! A little bit of an "American Psycho" vibe, just without the murderous impulses. ;)

Lol, all you're missing is the mention of a hardbody.

;D
This is great! The set up of this poem only reminds me how much more can come out of poetry, very fun and unique. I almost feel longing in this poem with is great, and the imagery is fantastic, I can picture her perfectly, very sultry. Good Job!

Nah its where your inspiration comes from... you like to have a good time!
I liked the formatting of your lines, the indentations created a swaying effect. Of course, I was snared by the title...

Good attention to detail, the way you described her...and your ending was nice, very nice!

Great description of a stripper or dancer. Such a passionate feeling too! Deep concept. Writing really takes you to different places and yet the same......Kyam

While unraveling yourself
From our mortal fetters
Bone fingers
Reaching, beckoning

Wicked and sexy love the dark draw as you see it.
There is something so raw and eternal here ~
when one isn't scared of the dark and shadows, yet quite opposite and that is where the fascination begins
