When I was a girl
who dreamed of princes,
I met a man
who opened that secret place
where young girl's dreams are,
then in his rapture
saw me through the eyes
of his own pleasure.

Things I'd never noticed
from youth's bright window
I discovered in love's words
and the sun-full days, before him
began to seem ubsurd.

He insisted on clear vision
looked with fearless examination.
He tried to make me into
the woman in his heart song.
How could he create her
out of my youthful moonlight?

She was courageous
and complete and unafraid
of idol breakers,
I was fragile in the muscle
and afraid of two much friction.
She would have loved him
like a woman loves a man.
I loved him
like a rose bud
loves the morning dew.

Years have passed.
I no longer dream of princes.
Sometimes I wonder
if he searches still for Tandy.

hmmmm, I liked this, good picture of how 2 people look for something in the other that is not really there, but they find a way to see it to their own gratification.....
