The Princess...of Night
She stands alone in her own world,
Waiting for someone to rescue her.
The princess of lost hopes
And of dreams unheard.
She watches, she waits
For her hero to come.
To save her from the sorrow,
To save her from the pain.
She sits alone in her castle tower,
Staring in the mirror.
The sun is setting beyond the horizon.
The night draws ever near.
She dreads the night
Though 'tis yet to come.
She wants to bypass the darkness,
To stay in the light.
She sees no way out.
No other option
The long awaited hero not in sight
The sun almost gone
She unsheaths a blade.
Golden-handled, shining, friendly blade
And with one quick stab throught the heart
Just as the sun sets...
She awakens in the morning.
The night was pure hell.
She knows it, thought wishes 'twas not true.
She's doomed to live another day.
