Artificial candle light engulfs the mirror in its solemn glow .
She brushes a red velvet sleeve over her fevered forehead.
As if she could wipe it all away .
Droplets of envied liquid nature cling to the looking glass.
It helps to keep the mood somber.
The slow uncoiling of the snake reminds her of its hunger.
She realizes her dingy socks donít match her dress.
And are more like her mood
Hey Lady, I thought I could at least try for one of your poems. I read both that were posted tonight. And both are great. I love the way you just harmonize your words. It's like so soothing the with the flow you used. I like the fact in both poems the person is facing a unwanted demon in their life, and their reaction to it. Great job. Now to bed! lol. Maggie
I love this one. It's great the image of women always getting prepared for going out. This piece shows a little different side to that. Her subconcious tells her more about what's going on with her pair of socks and that she should probably just stay home and relax instead of go out and try to be something she's not. Beautiful
