Cinderella’s Alibi

I like the tick and tock of the walk
Left over right follows the line of chalk.
Hips sway a mother’s lullaby,
Advertising a lover’s potiential sigh.

Buy high heels online now!

Shop with confidence, avoid troublesome returns and find your perfect stilettos today.

It’s the power of an elevated view.
At an equal eye level when I shakes hands with you.
Red, yellow, or polka dotted,
Tick-tock, tick-tock I have been spotted.

Stridding long, yet gracefully these shoes demand.
I wear them for me, and whomever is at hand.
Oh shoes, how I have grown to love you.
