Prince Then or Prince Now?


                                
In our mind's eye
perfection lives
 
upon an ivory pedestal
 
in brilliant light
 
crystalline.
 

But those are too prison walls
 
because Unique’s Reflection
 
and Perfection's Pall
 
exiles the dreamer from that outer world
 
of reality.
 
The dreamer does not mingle there
 
living only the constricted dream
Perfect Dreaming allows. 
Realities approach
is viewed as threat
to Perfections Glow
and we move to protect
our Dream Prince
from seemingly lesser Prince Now
and the conumdrum looms


Honeymoons and marriages
 
might last longer I think
 
if we did not first wed
 
mentally
our Perfect prince beforehand.
 

Is it not truth plain
 
that love itself is only grown
 
when 1st Prince Born
 
is laid to rest
 
and Prince Now
 
is allowed to live?
 

How better ground is it
 
to love the flower in the garden now
 
that those ones first grown
 
in furrows of gold
 
in dream world
 
where perfection's hoe
 
was the seeder
 
and instigator
 
of the visions
 
we now hold
 
of what ought to be?
 

How can Prince Now in flesh and blood
 
compete with Princely Diamond Visions
 
which never fade or rust?
 

Whose hand is warmer still
 
than the Princely hand held in our dreams?
 

Who is sadder than
 
those who loved us;
 
yet whose faces are shadowed
 
by cold, perfection's glow?
 

How to dream
 
our destiny
 
yet still
 
love those
 
round us;
 
remembering these ones
 
are the ones who will
 
when we, in time, tomorrow
 
are no longer our Own Prince
 
or Princess Image;
 
no longer Perfection's Darling.
 

Rest you better in human arms
 
while they grow old and leather
 
they'll not in the end
 
take your pride and sell it away
 
to dream-land barons
 
and rock star princes
 
who all live in Hollywood.
 

But what to do?
 
Abandon vision
 
goals and Prince
 
leave aside our destiny?
 

No we must grapple with
 
this conundrum sent
 
wrapped up perfectly
 
and beautifully-Prince Perfect
and Prince Now one real
the other a mental vision
foisted upon us by Hollywood.
