Whispering Peonies Of Graceful Allure?

What is she all about?

She walks with whispering grace,

like a peony swaying in the summer breeze,

leaving silky pink petals in its wake


Her serene blooms

are as captivating as

a glowing bride’s


Floating elegance

in every step

Intoxicating sweet fragrances

for all to inhale


Heads pivot,

eyes all agape,

a hiss of breath intake


Echoes of longing

dance along the concrete canvas

of need, envy, want


A saucy smirk from her plush lips,

a wicked twinkle from her chestnut orbs,

impish glances


Oh, how she loved to be adored!


Too bad

her enchanting

allure was

a façade

to all who

knew her

all too well


C'est dommage

    Reminds me about how people deemed to be attractive that receive a lot of attention have it easier to use people as an attention resource, as they're almost never out of admirers.

  • Very cleverly crafted - Message is spot on 🤍
