Femme Fatale

Updated on September 12, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


She sits in the dark

Waits patiently

A panther ready to pounce

Her blood red lips

Seductively blowing smoke

Cutting no slack

Sleek dark hair falls straight

Down her back

Her life's mission

To bring on attack

She has a power

Unlike any other




A vixen to the X

With eyes like thunder

Sharp as a whip

No need for slumber

Curves like wild fire

No one is safe with her around

She leaves no peace


She breathes in the sound

Ready to be released

"You think you've met your match?"

She quietly purrs

Don't be so sure

She'll rip your heart out

Quenching her thirst

Without any thought

She'll blink an eye


Go back to playing her cards

At midnight

      Gotta love a good Femme Fatale. What would detective fiction be without them? I've never met a Femme Fatale personally. Are they still around?

      Well written poem.
