Modern Day Rapunzel

Modern Day Rapunzel
In your
Isolated tower-when will they
No longer be enough? Your
High window view, and
Wishes that remain only wishes?

Something keeps you kicking away the ladders
Of the ones who’ve tried to rescue you-
(Certain that they couldn’t be sincere?)
As for me, I’ll stand here off and away
And let the sweet wind carry
My message to your ear.

If I would
And you would
Trust to love
We might relax enough to allow ourselves
To learn how to care.
Life is too grand a gift to be spent
Herded into a box, as you must admit
That you are, there.
You must
Let down your hair
Let down your hair
To breath free air.
