high heels

yes I put you on every now and then
you make my feet appear so small and dainty
while on the inside I'm feeling ten feet tall
and I hear the clicking as I walk around
wondering where you would take me
or if I would even give you permission

and I stare in the big mirror
watching the transformation
and giggle at how just a pair of shoes
can make me feel so giddy
as long as I only look at you
and the two ankles that bring you to life

so for now we carry this secret
of the loveliness that you inspire
and the hope that there may be one special day
that you just might step outside
and leave behind these towering walls
that keep me from going to the ball

Oh my dear would be the "Bell of the Ball" ~~~~ Go for it!!

I love all the little pictures from your flickr....

The dinner has been changed to Aug. I am so looking forward to seeing you then.

Gotta high heels are waiting.

you make me wish I could still wear them. I could get by with it for just a little while! As long as I didn't have to walk very far in them. It seems my flat sandals and leather clogs have spoiled me!

If I squint as I look at this photo, I could swear that the slippers are Ruby red. If that is so, all you have to do is make that wish to go past the wall, click the heels three times and your wish will be granted.

You know, of course, that the wall is of your own doing. What you may not realize is that you have already left it behind. When you look at it you are being tricked into thinking you are on the inside.

Look over your shoulder, YOU ARE FREE!!!!

May peace and love be with you always.

Isn't it fun what a pair of heels can do? I loved wearing high heels and sigh mistly once in awhile for the days that were. Ah well.
