Two

Perky breasts

That rose and fell

In throes of passion

 

One

Slender waist

That swayed

To a music of its own

 

Two

Cherry red lips

Luscious and tasty

Fruits forbidden

 

One

Aquiline nose

That hooked anyone

A man trap

 

Two

Willowy hands

That accepted many

Wicked embraces

 

One

Gorgeous body

Men worshipped

And lusted

And bought

 

Two

Eyes, once alluring

Now unseeing

The whites prominent

 

One

Heart

Beating no more

 

One

Heart

That none knew of

Except the knife

That made its acquaintance
