A Princess’s Disdain


A Princess’s Disdain

I’ve travelled all those far distant lands
Hiding inside your secret dreams.

I’ve seen all you ever denied wanting
Spread out on exotic rugs before you

As you watch with a princess’s disdain
While courtiers dance upon your every whim

And your failed lovers haunt these corridors
Of your fantastic palace, searching

For that one special moment that will allow
Them to spend even one more minute

In your presence, just to saviour the delicious hurt
Of seeing what they will never touch again

Before once again they are tossed aside
Grateful to have been forgotten

And fearing you’ll remember why
They proved so unworthy to you

And how you can dispose
With a wave of one indifferent hand

All the hurts of this other world
You are condemned to live through.
