Dressed To Impress
Sharp pointed toe
Patent red leather
Dangerously high stilettos
Daring to be challenged
Fish net tights
Run her legs long
Smooth skin peaks from behind coarse ropes
Teasing to be touched
Tight slinky dress
Shorter than her fingertips
Exposed scratches down the back
Tempting to be torn off
Red stained lips
Sinister eyes, dark and enchanting
Designer perfume lingers as she passes by
Begging to be noticed
She’s dressed to impress
Cracked heart with some bruises
Head trapped in a disheveled mess
Eyes looking in the wrong places
Dying to be loved
West Jordan, Utah

Gil: I would like you to read my novel and get your opinion.
Ernest Hemingway: I hate it.
Gil: You haven't even read it yet.
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer.

“The moment you think you understand a great work of art, it's dead for you.”
I must lie down where all the ladders start
In the foul rag and bone shop of the heart.

"If you born poor it is not your fault, but if you die poor it is your fault." Bill Gates
this quote is not how it appears, it is about coming from nothing and making something of yourself.
I know she isn't real, but you made me shed a tear for this poor poor woman. I've never felt like this, but hey, I'm 15. Again, beautiful work..

-Biting's excellent. It's like kissing only there's a winner."-Doctor Who, The Tardis
This is so true, that some women feel this way. Really, almost every woman feels like that at least once, I think. Great poem: throughout the entire thing I love how you sort of incorporated her inner thoughts.
If you can, can you comment/give me constructive criticism on some of my work? My new poem is "A history's Sorrow", and my new story is "Alone?". Alone? isn't published to the website yet, but if you have time can you read it in the writer's workshop forum? Thank you, and nice work!! :)
