the prince and the pretense

By Candy Cain

Princes proceed through the vains

to pry open the pristine

treasure in the chest.

Princes can jump start your engines

Loosening layers so a prisoner

under pressure's less depressed.

Princes can breakdown a complex process

offering you something practical

to make you better than your best.

But if Princes are all in fairy tales

very well, I'll play pretend

and pray we'll never reach the end.

    I'm left wondering if I can find away to live inside this piece. I much enjoyed reading this aloud and letting your scape roll off my tongue... Hm, that sounded a bit dirty. Anyways, I fucking LOVE UNICORNS! ...I think I'm done here. -TG💋 Scholar

    Something whimsical to put together like a jigsaw puzzle on love . Vains or veins , through both flow life's blood to the heart . And "under pressure's less depressed" is a gem .
