Hero in Norwich

My castle is dark, for the monster is here.
The chill of the night is soon drawing near.

Held captive by him, how I long to be free.
The dragon is lurking in watch over me.

The Queen of Norwich let her jealousy rule.
My curse is this attic; a sentence so cruel.

We loved the same man; she refused our affair.
So then I was banished so she'd have him there.

My plea to the jurat was humble and meek.
A key to the window; fresh air I do seek.

The answer is clear as I spill words on this page.
No aroma was welcomed; rosemary or sage

Now as I lie on my bed devising my schemes.
To run as fast as I can to the man of my dreams.

I realize once more I am trapped; this is real.
For the dragon awaits my escape on the hill.

Feeling lonely I reach to my dusty nightstand.
The ring he once gave me I grip in my hand.

He said it was magic as they took me away.
"I will find you, my love; it will show me the way."

Closing my eyes I wish he was here.
Then suddenly I feel his warm lips on my ear.

I open them slowly as the room turns to fire!
We gaze at each other consumed with desire.

He said "don't be afraid we are leaving tonight."
"The spell will be broken for love is our light."

We held on to each other until he said it's time.
We passed through the flames and made love in the sky.
