Diana Muse 01

Black shirt, skirt, blazer

Hiding her porcelain white skin

Which glows radiant

As I strip her clothes away

Revealing the muse beneath


Black garter, hose, heels

And a mask of pure black silk

The muse recostumed

Her display inspires my verse

As she performs before me


A private viewing

Her captivating floor show

Performed on her bed

Inspires more than just verse

As a tension wells in me
