    dotsDrama Queendots

    Sometimes she imagines herself betrayed
    and self pity becomes her last meal.
    She rubs fragrant creams into her skin
    and rims her eyes in darkest kohl.
    Imagining herself to be Cleopatra
    languishing on gold threaded pillows
    an asp held to her breast.

    Sometimes she dresses in satin and pearls,
    posing prettily on her throne,
    her legs artfully displayed in front of her.
    Daring anyone the gall to look,
    and hating them if they don't.
    She fancies herself to be the temptress empress
    fallen from the pages of a fairytale book
    with her choice of princes from which to choose.

    The peasants see her as Marie Antoinette
    powdered, and pampered, bedecked, and adorned.
    They are sick of eating her cake.
    Gently they place her regal throat on the block,
    lest she get a splinter,
    before the blade comes down.
    They sever all ties with the drama queen.

    This is a fave... I feel like this. Oh me, oh woe... I love all the [censored] that comes flying and revel in it. And yeah... Look at me.. why aren't they looking at me? And then stamping feet and tantrums, indeed as a fairytale queen but perhaps in the mould of an Ugly Sister rather than Cinderella. Aww this is just such a baby that it's going in my faves.
    My time's coming close... I'm too much of a prima donna and someone is going to snap and take me down a peg or two. It *has* to happen-people wouldn't put up with such arrogant behaviour all the time, right?
    I don't, and that's getting up noses. Mhhhmm.
    Bring it on!

    Good work girl, this piece is so decadent and... indulgent!... this has really inspired an idea that.. I just gotta try out later!

      Hell yeah, this poem has everything that I want. a Fine ass woman and her getting her head sliced off by the old quick cut. BUT the thing I liked most about this poem is the way you started it
    Sometimes she imagines herself betrayed
    and self pity becomes her last meal
    you kinda just left it right there. Getting into the elegance and egotistical things that this hoe likes to do, and then at the end you assure the reader that the beginning wasn't for nothing. ..I liked that
    Thanks for the poem.

      i remember this one! i love the ending, too.

    Gently they place her regal throat on the block/
    lest she get a splinter...

    WHACK! i've known quite a few of these type of ladies. so high maintenance and everything is always about them. you've portrayed her quite well and witty here! i'm glad you re-posted this one!

      "Daring anyone the gall to look,
    and hating them if they don't"

    This two lines are so timeless, especially with all the drama queens that I know here that are EVER so purrrty. I sometimes act like a jerk (well not really) to all the ubermegahubbahubba hot chicks that come into my store. Like I don't really do anything extra for them, don't really look at them, or try to be super friendly. But if a mediocore chick comes in before or after them, i'm all "Hi! How you doin! Fine weather today, aye?" then the hot chick comes up "Hi." *rings stuff up* "Have a good day" and then i walk away. haha. They look so confused and leave the store. :)
