Once upon a time, or so I was once told,
An icicle of lies from the one who's cold.
Gather around now, for one more retelling,
Of a treacherous account of all her failings.
In your tale, she's the sick leech,
Draining you of your will to care.
In your tale, you're so bewitched,
With the girl with the raven hair.
Once upon a time, or so the story goes.
Your ghoulish lies are the truth that this world knows.
The night awaits us, for one last retelling,
One last vicious attack on all my failings.
In your tale, I'm the bad wolf,
Drooling with my venomous rage.
In your tale, you're the sad fool,
Your tragic fate drenching each page.
Once upon a time,
You got away with a crime.
Once upon a tale,
Your twist facts to feed your hell.
Once upon a crowd,
You're their deity without a doubt.
Once upon a dream,
You smile while my dying heart screams.
