Sleeping Beauty

Once upon a time...

 

In a lost lost world

A dreaming girl slept.

So did her country men

And everyone who wept.

 

A hundred years passed

A not one second early,

Was another girl born

With hair really curly.

 

She heard of the story

of a young lost girl

Who can only be awaken

By the touch of a pearl.

 

She went on an adventure

and fought blow by blow

Until she came upon the town

Covered by soft, white snow.

 

She defeated the monsters wrath

with a might she didn't know.

And found the room of the girl

that gave off a certain aglow.

 

But the bed was empty

no girl in sight.

Until she heard a noise

and gave out a fright.

 

She turned around

startled at the noise

and came upon a girl,

all quiet and poise.

 

They stood there for hours

staring with no end

trying to figure each other out

and trying to befriend.

 

The long lost girl

turned away her gaze

and smiled and smiled

feeling nothing but praise.

 

She leaned on in

and so did the other

until their lips touched nothing

but one another.

 

After the two lovers kiss

the kingdom awoke.

And helped these two lovers

marry beneath a willow oak.

 

The kingdom never thought

that two queens would be together

But they knew that

love will always last forever.

 

And the kingdom prospered

and lived happily ever after.
