The Princess In The Tower

You want me to say you're the most important thing
When both of us realize it's a meaningless subject
For if I were Icarus and flew on wings into your heart
It would result in your harangues that Im smothering your space
And I would be left contemplating while sailing head long to cliffs
While you pursue another suitor for the pain that is your tryst
Looking for knights whose armours grime with tarnished veneer
And asking him the question which you desperately want resolved
But you'll never find the satisfaction of the happiness of two
When what you really want is sadness to be the princess in the tower

Again very strong in the feeling that the poem expresses, you are able to express it so well, I love the use and combination of words! Also the imagery is great! ~~Elya Thorn~~
What an emotional poem! I just read Adam's poem that had a very similar feeling to it.........(you would probably like it) Very good poem Silver. Sincerely, Mary
