Forgotten Princess

May 7, 2012
I see you have ambitions.
I see that you have dreams.
I see you calling out,
but they can’t hear your screams.
You built your castle walls
miles from the king,
hiding what you could,
so no one else could see.
So tortured by your demons,
but they still hold the key.
This silent wall inside yourself
you thought I couldn’t see.

You built your ladder far,
beyond sick words and still
you’re reaching for the stars
you’re goal can’t be fulfilled.
I see you hiding there,
beneath dark locks of hair,
matching eyes like charcoal clouds,
always looking so far down
were your sorrows pull you
until you’re drowning in the blue
sapphire skies hold unshed drops
all the life inside you stops

You hang your head
you’re all alone
high in your tower room
no hand to hold,
dreaming out the window
no one sees your wounds.

I know this girl,
I only wish
that somehow she could see
but a few steps back
and I realize
that she is really me.
