Owl Poetry & Prose

Angelica

She was a stallion, rather wild & free

Left to her own devices, yet shackled in to be

A convent girl, innocent yet roiling with passion

Yet, to chase men was not her fashion

Oh till he came along, unhinged her senses

And stripped her of shame, he stole her innocence

Though of course she wasn’t to blame

A creature such as this, has to be frisky, promiscuous

A slave to the desires of flesh, to uninhibited bliss

Yet she rides alone, her passion curtailed,

Her desire held in and fires now cold

Ah this Angelica, her tune strummed so bold

On guitars plucking songs of old

A fascinating creature she is deemed to be

Ah how she unconsciously resonates & speaks volumes to me

 

*Inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 character (played by Penelope Cruz) and theme song played on guitars – Angelica
