The Mistress


She hides behind the mask,
Her duties to a man not her own,
A pitiful, corrupt task,
To which society will disown.

Even with a face of beauty,
Hidden; for the shame is great,
The man was her only duty
Banished with her whorish fate.

The mistress is unknown,
By the man that uses her most,
A mask is only shown,
For sins we do not boast

    hmm.. Interesting poem. especially the Whorish fate part of it..
    I think you pick your fate.. Life is all about choices.
    The mistress is unknown, by the man that uses her most, a mask that is only shown, For sins we do not boast
    I could only imagine what this means.. Then again.. only the writer can interpret that.
    Interesting write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
