Female Obsession

Magnificent face,
penciled eyes,
drawn for attraction.
Swashbuckler’s swagger
fills the digital screen.

Sighs, smiles,
quickened heartbeat
dance their way
along the emotions.

Pirate visions
feed female obsession.
Collections of movies,
photographs, magazines
gathered to feed compulsion.

Daydreams of sailing ship lust
fill the minds of the besotted.
Fantasy’s wish to spend
even one moment
with Captain Jack Sparrow.

"...even one moment"
Yes, indeed...

Depp is one of my all time favorite actors, no matter what the role. I rather liked him as the gypsy in "Chocolat.' Enjoyed this piece very much!
