Love - Sunday Scribblings prompt 234

Written for Sunday Scribblings prompt 234 - LOVE

L O V E -1980's style

You loved me despite
the blustering bravado
that carried me forward
all hormones and big hair
dramatic black eyes that
Siouxsie would have loved
I was eighties chic and wore
the fishnet tights to prove it
crimpers were vital for styles
that screamed of quantity and
winklepicker shoes carried me
through those long long nights
in dark corners of seedy bars
where the music was too loud
and the mohicans moved and all
of my dreams were coming true....
