    beauty sleeps entombed (parts 1 & 2)

    beatuy sleeps entombed...(part 1)

    beauty lays her head upon a pillow wrapped in silk
    in a darkened chamber which shadows cant conceal

    restless in her bed clad in a linen gown of white
    with a sigh beauty wipes her eyes at another sleepless night

    on the walls inside her head shadows start to taunt
    familiar ghosts of times since past returning for a haunt

    alone she lays upon the bed that she so lovingly shares
    upon the walls the shadows dance into the dark she stares

    in another time when beauty cried her comfort was at hand
    a simple shift of her hips and she could touch her man

    now too many times beauty knows that she must lie alone
    wishing that her man was there for her to touch and hold

    she wonders if her man will ever come back to her
    expressed outloud with her voice and written it her in words

    she know for sure that he is here just destracted by the dark
    but she wishes that she could help lift the shadows off his heart

    beauty sleeps entombed by the darkness he creates
    wishing so much that she could help him escape

    so in the dark while she sleeps her mind is wide awake
    longing for the man she loves to share the bed theyve made


     beauty sleeps entombed (part 2 ~ the apology)...

     he sits upon his chair with endless words he writes
     trying to move ahead of the many demons he fight

     restless in his head armed only with his wit
     sifting though the dark and trying to deal with it

     of the walls inside his heart demons rip and tear
     into the darkness of his mind he can only stare

     alone he sits glancing up to where his lover rests
     trying to keep the shadows now from dancing in his head

     in another time when he cried to beauty he would turn
     to try to ease his burdon he now dumps it into words

     too many nights he knows for sure that shes had to lie alone
     he wishes he could change the time and be there for her to hold

     as he tries to fight through the war that he is in
     he only wants to win this fight and be a man again

     but his pain keeps his heart shadowed by the dark
     he must try to find a way from completly falling apart

     from his heart sorrowful sigh an apology he extends
     for making his beauty sleep alone in darkness once again

    it's scary how well I related to both sides of this write. excellent story, typo in the second line (consil = counsel, console?), powerful imagery...and their love and longing for each other shine through. 10

    pretty epic write... full of insight and torment... you describe the two-sided struggle beautifully... 10+

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
