Red Lady


O woman of my dreams,
O graceful lady, you!
Wrapped in distorted linen,
But persona, elegantly-worn.
Dishevelled hair, too,
Full of confetti hither and thither,
You gather them and blow.
Your eyes, blurred with kohl,
Lips, tinted with flush.
Forbidden garden in the eyes,
Nectar-filled lips, tempting yet venerable.
O lady in Red, you stand alone,
Disgraced angel, mortal soul.
Wait wait, for your mesmerizing spell.

I've used a picture which I found most convenient to my poem when I googled the theme, so used it here. If there's anyone who doesn't want me to put it here anymore, please let me know, I'll remove it.
