In her new satin gowns, she drowns.

A sad and shattered heart bound tight with nothing but
creamy lace and silver buttons.

Playing dress-up with the damned.
Hide the pieces of a broken heart amidst the splendor of velvet and silk to soak up the blood.

A little something I just thought up right now. Nothing much. Just kinda...did.

Comments and critiques are always very much adored.

This brings to mind both women of olden times with tight corsets and saddening happening as well as modern ones you dream of being princesses. Well said.

It did sound like a harkening to an older era as I wrote it. Dunno how or why, but it did ^.^

Thanks hun! Glad you enjoyed it ^.^

You're welcome! And I believe it is most likey the use of words like "gowns" and the second stanza has a very Victorian feel to it.

That's probably it...a word not used much anymore. Also, the mention of lace and silver buttons together, connected with the word "gowns" conjures to mind a Victorian bustle dress from the upper class.

Just wonderful, like a delicacy it was gently constructed with the right creamy fillings and topped with a chocolatey cover. (and now I'm hungry! >.>)
