The Siren's Call.

Bright pink lips,
booty shorts,
a bikini top.

She gestures wildly,
beckoning every person
to have a dance with her.

Another drink goes down
and I'm pulled into her dance
where hips thrust wildly
and hands roam everywhere.

Yet when lips meet,
it's hollow and broken
sloppy and careless
no spark or real feelings.

I don't walk away
or even pull apart.
Our limbs mesh together more
and even though it's full of sweat
and nothing more than heat
I cannot bring myself to turn away.

This Siren has captured me,
and for the rest of the night
I'm hers.
In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous and devious creatures, portrayed as women who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.

So I took it more into today's sense, made a Siren more modern. I thought today, Siren's would patrol bars, and really sing their songs with their body's rather than their voices.

I really liked your piece. I did feel that it could use more imagery in stanza. I think that if you have each line in your poem start with some type of image it would give more of an impression on what you're trying to portray. Other than that I feel that this is a very good piece, and I really enjoyed reading it.

Calling... You hear the calling...

Calling... You hear the calling

Let me go
What's on my shoulder?
Little by little, I feel a bit better...

*+9000 internet points if you get that reference* ;)

I loved the picture so much, I didn't even realize there was a poem attached to it. Both are equally great!

Keep up the good work! :iconthumbsupplz:
