Far across fertile fields and raging rivers
Through woods filled with wooden slivers
Underneath the bluest of skies
Lies a castle built of stone and timber
Proudly does the heralding flags fly

Brightly does the sun ever shine here
Washing over the merry people clear

Rising up in the middle of the castle, a tower
Strong and tall, an example of the royal power
Parapets placed upon the top like a crown
The princess within, spends every waking hour
Forlornly looking out, and down

Fingers working the loom, spinning through time
Anything to ease her heavy, burdened mind

Below the tower, the people move unknowing
Their faces beaming, a happy countenance showing
Going about with everyday cares
While up above, constant tears flowing
A still and stifling silence in the air

As she waits with hands clasped saintly,
Waiting for her prince to return, patiently

Please tell me there will be more. Does the prince return?

You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
and show the world all the love in your heart
Then people are gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That your beautiful as you feel.~~~ Carol King

You know i never thought of that. I thought the title would kind of answer that. I don't like to be sugary sweet. I like to slip dark, depressing, sensual themes into my love poems whenever i can. Because after all, isn't that what reality really is?
Thanks Kitkat and Seymour.

Splendidly written and intriguing.

The setting is great....the happy people on the ground unaware of the unhappy princess above with the bright sun shining down. I can see it with clarity.

Thanks Meadowmuse, I like that line too, probably because i was unconscious when i wrote it and can't remember how i came up with it.

And thank you Balladeer, that is exactly what i was trying to portray.
