Gypsy Girl - Poem by James Casey

Gypsy Girl

She soars on wings of eagles
A fantasy trip to the stars
Gypsy girl with the face of an angel
Though nomatic eyes show gypsy scars

Her hair shades of brown laced with gray
Gliding low over well rounded hips
With unspoken whispers of pleasure
From full bodied voluptuous lips

Wherever the four winds moved her
She`s at peace like a bird in flight
No permanent nest for this gypsy
She gets to rest only during daylight

Like one chained to the tail of a Dog Star
One would think it a life of despair
Though not for this blue eyed gypsy
With moonbeams entwined in her hair

This gypsy girl is tormented by devils
Self imposed unashamed she would say
Summoned up by her magical potions
Hallucinogens that take her away

What a waste of a beautiful creature
A woman once delightful and bright
Who travels the highways to nowhere
Doomed to doing it night, after night, after night
