masquerade (soul goddess challenge)
I climbed into my costume where there
was no way to see any part of me.
I was covered from head to toe.
You could not even see what color
skin i hid underneath.
The only thing you could tell was
that i was female.
The others inside of the party
was hid just as well.
i sat at the table watching from
a distance as people danced.
I could not tell if anyone was
interested in me.
Then as i walked to get a drink i
heard another say dance with me.
He took my hand leading me to
the dance floor.
He could not get to close to me
as my costume was big you see.
We glided along as i swayed from
here to there.
Softly he talked to me.
Asking me what i thought of this
house and the party.
When the dance was done we sat
and talked for a time or two.
Then he said do you want to see
the person underneath the costume
in front of you?
I said yes we both went into our
Taking off the layers and climbing
out i put on a party dress.
I came out to see who had danced with me.
To my pleasure it was a gentlemen
very nicely dressed outside the door
waiting for me.
He grabbed for my hand and we headed
for the dance floor.
Where we danced the night away with
everyone's eyes watching us.
For we were not the normal couple you
see i was a little short and curvy.
He was drop dead gorgeous and he
really wanted to spend time with me.
