My Fair Lady

by Startle Me   Jun 5, 2007

The woman looks at the men flirtatiously;
Batting eyelashes, twirling with her hair.
She is the desire of every man in the room.
As everyone else in the area sit and stare.

A beautiful face, perfect teeth, gorgeous body
One could sense that it is her natural beauty.
She could make every average man drool.
For it is this beautiful woman's duty.

At night time, the character would change
Her makeup would clog the beautiful face.
Harlot would wear no more than underwear
As the woman sells her body and her grace.

Yet, it is her job to vend herself in the streets.
For this woman relied on her beauty too much.
She is still the same woman underneath it all.
Men would still lose their mind at lady's touch.

    i didnt think this made much sence... and the first line there seemed kinda childish...

    Some of the grammar ws off, but I like how you started by describing her and then going into her "job", and you could tell what it is even though you didn't come right out and say it. Great job.

    Sit and stare= sits and stares

    Interesting poem. I read it all, and liked it. I think you could have ended it differently, and you could have gone more in depth, but other than that this poem was wonderous.

    Well deserved 5/5 from me =]

    Well done.

    It's funny how we sometimes look at people and assume we know a little if not most about them judging by the way they look/dress. I loved the poem and the topic was very unique, flow was pretty good and it ended strong - nicely done 5/5

    Wow, this is quite an interesting poem. I wasn't expecting the twist at the end at all. Your description created beautiful imagery, and the flow was really good. It did get a bit rough at the end, but it was only minor. Well done at this unique piece.
