you took my tiara,
telling me true princesses did not flaunt.
you took my gowns,
telling me i was more beautiful without.
you took my heart,
telling me it would be safe.

i'm taking back my tiara -
i deserve it.
i'm taking back my dresses -
i need them for dances.
i'm taking back my heart -
you lied.

(i'm off to find a real prince:
that tarnished armor of yours won't fool me again.)
