Sleeping Beauty 2: Embowered

What were these walls before, before the break?

Did tapestries hang heavy under dust

And tallow light the pathways in my wake?

Did I learn all the truths a daughter must?

Is now the last fulfillment of my fate

To roam this barren manor in my shift

An endless bleak October lost in wait

And smothered in a fog that cannot lift?

To grasp the splintered spindle tighter still

To take each frozen step across the stone

No longer granted hope, nor pain, nor will

My life a sin for which I must atone

Eternity is set -- my die is cast

Come not to find me, love; that chance is past
