Sleeping

Sleeping beauty
Has been gone too long
No kiss can call her back
From dreaming’s deathly shade
She is perfect
Untouched by time
But unclaimable
Irredeemable
Her prince came
But far too late
Far too late

They will treasure her
Just like art
In a gallery
And all will come to see
Slumber’s princess
Lying now
In hallowed state
Her prince came
But far too late
Far too late

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
