Princess in the Tower

Wondering around
She stayed locked in her tower
There was no one to watch over
To tell her when the flowers bloomed
Tell her that her life laid in ruins
All that was left of her dreams
Was all that remained...

Once she had a perfect life
She let it all go by
And now she don't know
Where to go
Do you understand why he lied?

Her own prince Charming
Came to court her
Left her in the castle
Only to desert her (divorce her)
Left her with all the pain inside
Now it's not easy to reside
In a house made of stone
It's hard to start
A new life all alone...

Once she had a perfect life
But she let it all go by
And now she don't know
Where to go
Do you understand why he lied?

He promised her freedom
Outside the stone walls
She was so scared
She wouldn't leave
He left without her
And every night she grieves

For the love she lost
Outside the stone walls
Freedom was almost hers
But she won't wake up
She will not wake up to be alone
Again

Once she had a perfect life
She let it all go by
And now she don't know
Where to go
Don't you understand,
He lied?

I loved how you took a modern-day romance of two hearts,be them besotted or veridically in love,
and transmuted the incidental behaviour of the relationship into an archaic phantasy that
transpires in a realm that once was.The intrigue
of how love was esteemed long ago is still quite prevalent I see.Men are different now.Women are different now.There are still people that roam the earth whom realize the meaning of true love; you declare yourself as one of these people.So
nice to see that you have not allowed the emphatic marathon race for pecuniary gain to overrun your virtues and morals.Sincerely,Eric

That was my favourite part. I can't believe how beautiful this is. I could hear the emotion, reading it aloud. Such a wonderful poem.

The stone walls of the heart, I'm assuming. I know how that feels. Every girl is a princess locked in that chamber at some point or another. Great piece.

This is a great poem.
You do need to fix stanza 4 however.
I think you meant, "And now she don't know"
Keep up the good work.
