NO AWAKENING KISS

Your love
a rungless ladder

that I
foolishly endeavoured
to climb

to a tower
that wasn’t
there

an unhappy ever after ending

there was no turning into swan

the clock was forever
striking midnight with a fearful ****

there was no glass slipper
that fit

there was no awakening
kiss.

There was only
the rungless ladder
of your love.

There was only
a tower

that didn’t exist.

And I
only

a foolish
blind prince.
