On The Brink

Written for:  Sunday Muse #73

stolen from lydia

She stands
on the brink
of womanhood.
One part white
ruffles, and cute
teddy bears-
the other a sexual
awakening-a desire
to be provocative,
see what the next
step will be.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
