The princess and the fool

These rocks are smooth  

He recognized their every single move  

The path heís treading after  

Filled with laughter  

Nothing new  

Insists itís just a casual  

Less than average afternoon  

No trouble with his words  

since he cast them at the moon  

Completing lists of things  

†heís been procrastinatingÖ  

Soon  

But heís smitten  

And heís with it  

Always traveling toward  

His doom  

Her clocks tell time too soon  

Sheís sitting in her kitchen  

Baking †bread crumbs before noon  

Divination without placement  

Spinning heartstrings  

With no loom  

Itís not that she has him captured  

Itís just the way  

her magic works the room  

So the tragedy just had to be  

The fact that he assumed  

His path would be the difference  

That she lacked but thatís too soon  

And in this thereís a sonnet  

So he sings her half a tune  

But it's funny cause he always  

Loses breath before he croons  

But heís loud enough to lift  

The kisses  

From all the petals as they bloom  

And she pins this on her groom  

While he sinks back to the background  

The only place he ever knew  

Nothing else to do  

But just miss her and resume  

The laughter in the void of love
