My Lady Fair - Poem by julie kops

I have wandered on eternal quests
Have braved the heat of the dragons lair
Yet the one mission i have not fulfilled
Is how to touch the heart of my lady fair

I know you have long been imprisoned
And your castle become an iron cage
But oh for the chance to set you free
How many wars in truth would i wage

I know it is fear that holds you bound
And the memory of wounds wrought in time
But trust me lady you have never touched
A brave heart so true as mine

She replied oh my gentle warrior soul
You have always been my most steadfast knight
But to break through this shell i wear
You will have to take up your greatest fight

And it will not be easy dearest soul
The journey fraught with my endless dark
But tis the only way imaginable
To see the light that shines in this broken heart

Put down your sword and listen close
My deepest secret to you I will share
Only with much time and patience
Can you hope to see the inner lady fair

You must be a constant in my darkest sky
Show me through courage the heart of my knight
You must prove to me over and again
That I am always worth the fight

If you dare to brave this treacherous path
You may find where my soul hides its simple light
Tell me are you strong enough my dear
To be the warrior that dances through my starry night? -JK
