Why do I wear a corset, you ask
Well, to protect myself!
My corset is my armour.
My maquillage is my mask,
I endeavour to explain
It's a flawless barrier
Between you and me.

My eyes, my lips, are all my weapons
I wear my hair long and curling
To hide the mark
Where the devil placed his lips
Upon my neck.

Or so you would say, I'm sure.
Isn't that why you are here
                                                   My young Father.

Do I entice you?

Am I leading you down a path
Of pleasure and evil?

You claim you're here to save my soul
And how will you do that?
Are you offering my absolution whilst

                                              You fuck me?

Will I find heaven
With you between my legs?

Let's not call it 'making love'
Let us not debase that feeling
Reserved for good Christian souls

Not a heretic
                     And his whore.

I wear a corset
To stop you touching my naked waist
Digging your fingers into my breasts
Whilst in the throes of passion.

I wear my maquillage
Because it is as though you do these things
To someone else.
Whilst in the throes of passion.

You think you make me feel.
I feel nothing.
You think you mean something.
You mean nothing.
You think we are something.
We are nothing.

'does it offend you, yeah?'

i watched Black Death the other day, there was a relationship like this in it...only it seemed more consential. who knows? self-delusions a fascinating thing

sorry to anyone i did actually offend...but life isn't all butterflies and sparrows.

comments? :)

As I read this I noticed my face moving upwards in a very dignified manner, haha. This is really very good, and there are some magnificent lines which are worded beautifully.
"My eyes, my lips, are all my weapons
I wear my hair long and curling
To hide the mark
Where the devil placed his lips
Upon my neck."
