How to Help
Trapped in silence, in a world not my own.
Golden castles on purple lawns, trees with leaves of blue beneath
Pink clouds on navy skies, with orange stars like staring eyes
Golden bridge leads to clock tower bright, beyond the castle gate,
Through shining castle walls she stands,
Her heart beats in frozen time inside her flowing gown
Eyes that search for hands to touch, to take from wizards spell,
Her body that he snatched, held inside a rock of old
A doorstep now to his castle black, quantum leap I need,
As I watch children play under midnight skies
They sing of a time when their golden castle will return
To bricks and mortar, with a queen they can touch.
I cannot find a way to help. In silence held by wizard’s spell
To echoes beyond golden castles gate…
