SLEEPING BEAUTY---ONCE UPON A TIME
Such was time, a record-breaking passage
When you were forever, my endless sun
A sleeping belle wrestling against reason
Touching a hag’s needle in an era of rage.
Yet I sought you, enmeshed in feisty strains
Bound helpless by a dark magic’s charade,
Till lightened journey began to slowly fade
As my beard grew longer from your remains.
While I tried to grapple with a witch’s spell
This arthritic prince limped for a century
Raking my strength with illness, on wood’s debris
And you embalmed in mud , also unwell.
Toothless this mouth with gums hollow inside,
As my fiercest desire had gone astray
Darn! I looked for you in a cherished way
But kissing my Rose , an access denied!
