Her mother prayed pleading with the heavens to save her daughters soul….
for a night out Ignoring disapproving glances
As she bathed in perfumed soaps and painted her pale lips bright red. devout Catholics
Kneeling at altars
filled with lit candles, saints, and despair…
Fear and Catholic guilt
tugging at her heart
As she arrived
at a small bar
Where sinners gathered
Tables sticky with stale beer,tears and lost chances.
Music screaming over laughter,petty fights and drug induced serenity.
A Handsome man takes her hand Asks her to dance
With hands on her hips
something she knew long ago
In his arms their bodies swaying to the music moving like flames of eternity.
Holding her close Like any lover could
Looking deep in her eyes, burning her soul exposing vulnerability Whispers of sweet lies filled her head. Enticing sin.
taking her in as she
wondered about a God
who never came to save her
never heard her pleas…
She danced with the devil….
