Today's prompt asks us to think about escape, about breaking free of a chrysalis and flying. I started to think about Once Upon a Dream from Sleeping Beauty and Let me be Your Wings from Thumbelina, and I played with the sonnet form and adapted it and twisted it around a bit.
This is the story of how I fell in love with my husband Mark.
Once I thought I knew what I would be,
But life does not come with a guarantee.
I had a plan: I did not need a man;
Then I met you, and through my soul you flew.
Suddenly, I could clearly see
That you had always been the one for me.
I know that dreams aren’t always what they seem,
But I know you, and what we have is true.
Your kiss awoke me and you set me free;
We soar together over land and sea;
I wear your ring and you are my wings;
I love you; I know you love me too.
Together we can do it all;
You will never let me fall.
