Sleeping Maiden
A maiden sleeps in the highest spire,
guarded by a dragonís fire.
Travel through the castleís keep,
hurry now! Thereís a reward to reap.

Awaiting a prince and his pure kiss,
to awaken this enchanted Miss.
Though it has been centuryís now,
since evil made itís solemn vow.

The knightís time did surely pass.
Is there no one to save this lass?
She begs and pleads to no avail.
No sound slips through lips so frail.

The princess cursed to eternal dreams,
where her mind silently schemes.
A way to free her self from plight,
this hibernating state of perpetual night.

But evilís curse could not last,
so long ago given in ancient past.
This beauty awakens with a sudden gasp.
Freedom now in delicate grasp.

Sneaking down the highest spire.
Creeping past the dragonís fire.
Running through the castleís keep.
Hurrying now! Her reward to reap.

But even in fairy tales, all is not as it seems,
alas our princess does yet dream.
Forever waiting a hero true,
for only a happy ending will do.

I can kill the dragon if you want... It's waking you up that I'm worried about! (uproarious laughter)

Dear Angelique~
The problem here is we sometimes hold expectations that
can not be met by any in this life-
I guess if we took a harder look at our own imperfections
it might allow us to see another in their truest form-
This carried a lot of truth and delivered it well!
Best Wishes to You and Yours~

Excellent in form, meter and rhythm, as well as content! A true mark of the continued growth of your amazing talent! I was left with the thought of what curses (bonds) we put upon ourselves in awaiting that fairy tale ending. An awesome work of art....
