Is anybody home?

How many childhood stories
feature a princess
imprisoned in a castle?
And how many times
does she rescue herself?
So I took on the job
and now my road is clear;
what worries me is this:
there is no face at the window,
and the place looks cold and dark.
What if I'm too late?
What if I've spent too long
pursuing distractions on the journey
and the princess,
starved for love and food,
has long since melted away...
