I Am The Damsel You Are The Hero
It’s funny but I am the damsel an you are the hero
Though I am the hero an you are the damsel.
Like a monster with no weakness I rose my head proudly,
Till I saw your face an a heart of flesh I conceived.
Though I am a hero an you are the damsel, you saved me,
An I became thy helpless love in distress.
Like an addictive substance I craved you
But thy face like sunrise was scarce.
Suitor after suitor, sought thy hand
But only I sought thy heart.
Like a hero I fought off resistance that did pull you down to the depths of no return,
An I fought valiantly.
However your heart was not with me,
Though mine was with you.
You drew your sword like a hero,
But attacked me thy love an not your foe,
An I am slain in heartbreak.
Cant you see the darkness around you?
Though I am the hero an you are the damsel,
I am the damsel and you are the hero,
Defeated by yourself in murky pools of pride whose name is “hubris”.
An at lakes edge I wait patiently for you to return.
