• Zola Peltz

Princess in Isolation

Zola Peltz

Inspired by Princess de Broglie (1853) By Jean-Aguste-Dominique Ingre


Eyes

Blank and staring

into the breathless air

Hands

Weighed down

by meaningless golden flair

Hair

bound tightly in silk adding

to the presentation of an empty affair

Mouth

Wistful shadow of joy

journeying to a place elsewhere

Rings

Promises of breezy nothingness

crafted as a substitute for loving care

Locket

capturing the hearts desires, alas

gone they're

Lips

painted in demurity

to garner not one stare

Earrings

Gilded cage, woven to be ignorant of

the whispered glare

Lace

spiderwebs of elegance

confining for fear of tear

Crest

Silent gargoyle

thirsting for a hint of despair
