To steal a kiss from Sleeping Beauty;
  Ah, what a delicate art,
To brush her lips without her waking,
  Waking and breaking your heart.

  I cannot make full contact
On the lips of my princess, my reason to live;
  My love I know is truer,
A thousand times more than her prince has to give.

I stole a kiss from Sleeping Beauty,
  I’ll protect her from all harm,
But this lowly, lonely servant girl
  Wants to hold her in her arms.

Whenever,
If ever,
She wakes.
The full title is "To Steal a Kiss from Sleeping Beauty" but that was too long. Damn character limit...

Anyway, this is a parallel to my life a little while ago. I'm the servant girl, and a certain someone is sleeping beauty.

I wrote this just before I came out, by the way.

Read me!

Nice! I really like it. Normally I don't really read poetry (I'm a bit over-critical, I guess..) but the title interested me, and I'm glad I read it. :] Great use of rhyme scheme, and...I don't know, just very well written.

Nice... I love fairy-tale themed stuff. If I were you I would have gone with "To steal a kiss" as the shorter version of the title, though.

Thank you. Comments are always appreciated. Check out my gallery. I have some other poetry on there. Not exactly fairy-tale themed, though.
