ribbons of a lady

October 30, 2020

FREE WRITING

11
the ribbons of a lady
pull tight
so that their stomachs
don't show
and that their
arms flow gracefully
like the conjecture
of a dove's wing
fingers flutter 
to their chins
and their eyes are 
calculated
yet dismissive. 

the ribbons of 
a lady
pull
tight
so that their
canvases ooze
black
their forms 
weave in, out
and fade away,
until the ribbons 
of a lady
hold a lady no 
more.

    !WARNING!WARNING! happygiggles has officially been blown away.
    wow, I am speechless, and we all know that I could talk for Ireland, but- this left me speechless! I don't know what to say-wow. This is so poetic and flows beautifully but has such meaning behind it, and it almost makes me sad, wow. You have a way with words queenie, you have outdone yourself here! (:
