Perchance I Loved a Woman

A strong woman
A woman of a long ago time
Chafing at the lace and velvet halters they loved so much

You were more than they bargained for
You were strong
I guess that frightened them more than they could bear
So they tried to shut you away
In the crystal chandeliers and mirrored ballrooms reflections
You needed no worship
No man’s adoration and for that they couldn’t forgive you

Can I untie your mask
And let your inner loveliness bring rain to this dry and desert place
I don’t want to hold you back
I only want to hold
your hand
