Sleeping Beauty

She lies on the couch
The morning sun shines upon
her face and heart
Illuminates the wretched shadows
Dust dances in the light around her

And she closes her eyes to thoughts
And hopes to fall into enchanted sleep
Only to wake up by a gentle kiss
of her long expected prince
That will break the magic placed upon her
Or is it that then the magic truly will begin?



  1. Such a wonderful climb to those final lines and a great question. I think the magic is there but just needs to be released ๐Ÿ™‚
