Dreaming

Posted to Poetry




Can I crawl inside your tent
and talk of wishes spent
Pennies thrown into a fountain
as hollow as your heart
I look to see
and nothing but darkness greets me
My vision's fuzzy
The stars hold the hopes that fade away with each sunrise
Kiss my lips, cup my face in your hands
I am a princess in a castle destroyed
Fallen
to the ground
A royal pain in the ass
Or am I a soldier
on leave permanently?
Wounded,
not healing
Where are my medals?
Rub my spirit with bactine
I want to sing to the fairies
Dance with the butterflies
Free from my tomb
A beautiful woman that you love...
that I love
I want to be...
anything but me
