Necessity Seals ones Fate
"The Unwilling Courtesan" by Catherin Elizabet Belle
Darkness falls upon her tired soul
As shuttered eyes ponder her existence.
Dressed in sheer black desired
By clients who creep among the dancing stars
In the ebony hours to a loft hidden
In an elegant hotel, a seedy room exists
For the beautiful cocotte to sell
Her bodily favors to the highest bidder,
But how does she greet the dawn?

Waiting in the shadow of darkness
The maiden sits her eyes lowered in despair
Her sorrow obscured by the blinds
The hour of his arrival long past;
Rich in character and means
His generosity the difference between
Hunger and lodging for her precious joy
Wee babe love of her life.

Existing in the gray mist of the night
Risking humanity with each visitor
Seeking her worn body for carnal pleasure
Taking never giving, each trick
Haunting her soul as silent tears
Slither down her time ravaged visage
She sighs with dire resolve mentally counting
The coins hoarded for formula.
Pays one point and 2 member cents. Artwork by Linda Bickston at
