Waiting for her Prince (an allegory for 21st century women)

By sara_nia

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair"

Those dreamt of words
That spun around
(and around)
inside her pretty little head
Too perfect to describe.
Too perfect to ignore.

Ingrained in her
from the beginning.

She waited for years.
Time seemed to lose
its meaning.

And then
once upon a day
she looked
(and saw)
scissors
a key
a staircase
and a door.

With tears and a heavy heart
she understood.

She cut
(and cut and cut)
and stepped
and unlocked
and opened
and ran

and ran

and ran.
