SLEEPING BEAUTY

SLEEPING BEAUTY

must've been
sleep walkin'
when you came in
sweet talkin'

over i was
snowed
with a promise
and rose

was warned
about your kind
how could i be
so blind

was it that
enchanting disguise
the wink
in your eye

the lies
on your lips
that had my heart
doing flips

James Dean
style
that drove
me wild

put so well
together
should've known
better

didn't wanna
see
beyond the
veneered teeth

when the cracks
showed through
saw the
real you

your colors
of true
no longer
held a pink hue

those perfect
looks
just a cover
on a book

the pages
inside
nothin' but a
picture slide

got cuaght up
in the romance
of the pomp
and circumstance

a girlish
fantasy
had me swept
off my feet

you spun me
around
was falling...falling
down

when i woke
with a start
saw you were
playing a part

just spiining
yarn
with a cunning
charm

your pick-up
schtick
was a poisonous
prick

squeaky wheel
gets the oil
discovered the apple
was spoiled

won't take
a bite
of your offers
tonight

no longer
asleep
or lost in
the beauty




 

romance/metaphorical

Love this one Cindylee! Brilliant work of art. I live a few miles from where James Dean was born. The community has a huge festival the last weekend in September that normally attracts thousands of people from around the world. Not so sure that will happen this year. Perhaps they will flock to WOL instead. Write on! 💖
