Word of the Day Challenge #98-Untitled Poem

Masquerade
faces shadowed
sneered lips
dragon tears
heady sensation
head so light
falling forward
sensual delight.
Silk against bare skin
whispered kiss
sliding
awe struck…..
never having seen…..
splendor as such.
Gold inked panels
marble veined floors
country girl
big city man
sweep me off my feet
take my heart
take my hand
hold me close.
Masked ballet
time to say hello
fizzed drink
something is wrong
fear
spikes through me
swirling
 twirling
  falling…..
awaken
altar strapped
gown rent.
Look around
no escape
men
only men
leer round
ready to gape.
Mama was right
ran through my head
faded though it be
ain’t no man so generous
without wanting to take
something sacred
something  you will not want to give.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
