To a "Dark Princess"

Oh this cloud that shrouds you, dear
  blackens and traps that heart so fine
 Leaving doubt where there never should be
  Can't you see?  I would shout so loud...
 If only I knew you could see...or hear me

A distorted mirror lies to you
 leaving tears fall for your poor heart
   or anger in place of where sorrow sickened
Crashing like waves and subsiding tides
  praised be that smile rarely seen
    shining to me willingly 

My dark princess...I see your angel
  She is effortlessly beautiful and free
    She flys graceful and lovely 
  She basks in th light you feel deprived

She is your other side...hiding
     hiding only from you

    It seems you are more aware of her than she is of herself. Sometimes, people need time to grow, to see. Sadly, it doesn't always happen in time. I feel your beautiful words, sweet adoration through your longing. Difficulty in relationships, inspiration to write it all out. Tender your words, wounded your heart. Good luck. Love, Shar
