I Often Catch Myself

I often catch myself
Glancing up at your windowpane
Occasionally seeing your silhouette
Memories of youth still remain

Possibly spying a lacy chemise
But now you’re wearing the curtains
Or maybe there was nothing on
But I couldn’t know for certain

The morning light not quite seen
I might feel like a common creeper
Alternate lifetimes in my mind
Yet I still know you’d be a keeper
I see your beautiful soul hiding
A passionate soul now a mere outline
Locked away in your precious life
I’m sure you’d say you’re doing fine

Possibly spying a lacy chemise
But now you’re wearing the curtains
Or maybe there was nothing
But I couldn’t know for certain

I see boundaries in your thought
I’m not intending to be rude
You can make your own decisions
I don’t wish to trespass nor intrude
You’re the princess in your castle
Not a figment of my invention
Locked eyes before you looked away
Somehow grateful for the attention

Once Upon A Time

vacation-888817

Once upon a time
In the land of kings & crowns
Princesses spoke in rhymes
With a belief in magic to be found
Giant castle walls
Alligators living in the moats
Knights clanking big & tall
Gentlemen in handsome coats
The ladies sitting down for tea
Each with a jeweled pillow to sit
Dressed grandly in all their finery
Each wee lass of the proper etiquette
Fairies danced above their heads
Their wings spraying drops of glitter
Like a whisper as thin as thread
Laughter rising as the pixies flitter
Wonderful to sip from cups & plates
Smiles abound on everyone’s face
Much nicer when no one’s late
Together is the happiest place
