seeking
striving
searching
for that One who refuses to be named
and I know that not all that glitters is gold
and this knife certainly cuts both ways
tis but a scratch and I’m not dead yet
but I’m guilty as charged
of casting my pearls before swine
but when will love be mine?
in this world of black and white
and hate and lies
I’m painting the roses red with my tears of blood
fighting
failing
falling
down the rabbit hole
but this Alice can’t catch up to her elusive white
and me thinks there are no white knights
or prince charmings
and I’ll  forever be chasing rainbows 
in the dark
My curse is 
My gift is 
My love

Ledah

Rapunzel by RickLaMesa

Once upon a time,

in a land far, far, away…

There lived a princess fair

with flowing locks of golden hair

Ledah dreamed both day and night

of her Prince Charming or White Knight

°°

SCRATCH THAT

——

Ledah lived in Tampa Bay
not in some land far, far away
She didn’t believe in fairy tales
she was no princess helpless and frail
Her world did not revolve around waiting for some male
Ledah was going to blaze her own trail
She cut her hair and dyed it blue
it looked fabulous with her new tattoo
With a determined glint in her eye
she unfurled her wings, for once, to fly!

FlyingFairy

FYI the meaning of Ledah is “small winged one”.
