She has a smile that lights up a thousand worlds.
Her soothing voice charms a thousands hearts.
Locked away high in her castle, she longs for her honey.
But he is far away and a $25,000 ransom sits on her head,
Immovable, the wall shutting out her love while shutting her in,
Stands iron firm, stone firm, cold and unyielding,
Like a jewel-filled safe in a vault.
The warden will permit one visit only,
And then wait another two years.
But her heart will not permit a light second-hand love on the fly as a way-station.
Her heart is only for the strong of heart,
The man willing to suffer the pains and slings of loneliness,
Vaster than a barren desert,
With oases of love scarce and far between.
She longs for her honey, trusting far more in him than he deserves.
