Stripped Bare

Wrapped in black lace
Didn't you know you're just his toy for today?
Your beautiful mind was just his to play
& inside you always wanted more,
but knew no other way.

A break from cold metal
Between your legs
In your heart
And on that stage.

He promised you more.
And for a second you thought
Maybe he'd stay.
But it was just another one night stand
And baby this time you paid.

This is amazing. I've never read anything that's delt with this situation before. It's great. The imagery is very good.

This is another really well written piece! The emotion is intense, and the images are well created. Beautiful in a cold, bitter way.
