Serpenta Ilmaris

by Rommel Cruz

She lays naked
Glistening bronze skin
Painted in gold and silver
Emerald hairs seducing
Petal breaths of lust
Legs long and slender
Eyes dark in mischief
Ensnaring to stare at
But she hisses too much
So I thrust a rusty blade
Thru her cold sinful heart.


Author's Note: Serpenta Ilmaris is the "Lady of the Sea of Seven Sins". =)
Thanks to all those who suggested a name for this Lady. Anne, Cat, Sebastian, Krissi, Quinn. To those I forgot, Im sorry, I have poor memory.
To all those who "forced" me to write this one (lol), thanks.

Whoa! Love unexpected endings. You could've just put a bag over her head. That's what I do whenever I make out with a hissing serpenta. ;o)

I love the imagry, and unexpectedness of the ending, but it does pose alot of questions in the readers mind. Is there more to this... is this but a beginning or is it the middle of a larger picture?
