I’m so sorry.

I’m sorry you’ve made me out
To be the menacing creature
Lurking under your bed.

I’m sorry that my truth
Spread like poison in your veins
Too quick for you to be saved.

I’m sorry that my happiness
Has left a cavern in your heart
Only to be filled with hatred and revenge.

I’m sorry that in order for you
To be the damsel in distress
I had to be your dragon.
Diana Aug 13
And so in the years to come
The prince and the maiden become one
And though he misses his family
He and the maiden live joyfully

How far they’ve come from the prince of the seas
And the maiden who sails with the breeze
How far they’ve grown through the years
Through pain and joy and laughter and tears

The story all started back when the prince saves
The maiden who fell beneath the waves
And in the future days hereafter
The prince and the maiden live happily ever after
Diana Aug 13
So early that day, before the rising morn
The prince kneels at the water, sad and forlorn
And his brothers rise with a solution
That to save him there must be an execution

So they hand him a knife, sheen and bare
Traded for their golden hair
And tell him this **** he must complete
And let the maiden’s blood drip at his feet

Only this way could he enter the sea
But the prince knows he cannot agree
For it is not the maiden’s faught
That it is the wrong man she sought

And so the angels of the sky
Hearing his sad, lovesick reply
Seek to show the maiden the wrong obverse
And fly down from heaven to break his mute curse

And so finally he could speak again
And he sprints to the wedding glen
His voice calling to the maiden’s ears
And hearing it, she cries joyful tears

And as their words of love are spoken
The last part of the spell is broken
So that they will forever live on land
The prince and the maiden, hand in hand
Diana Aug 12
And so the prince swims to land
And embraces the chilling spell at hand
His tail disappears, and is replaced by two
Human legs, both soft and new

Wobbling a bit, he slowly stands
And brushes away the water stained sands
And there he awaits, hopefully
The maiden who fell into the sea

When she comes, she comes gracefully
And he kneels before the shine of she
The maiden, her heart kind and bestowed
Welcomes the prince to her humble abode

And the next few months they go to and fro
And through this time the prince knows
Should the marriage of the maiden to another resolve
The dawn of the next day, the prince will dissolve

The maiden didn’t mind that the prince was mute
For it wasn’t his voice that’s his impute
But what a pity, for all the maiden knows
Is his beautiful voice singing his woes

On the day the prince will declare his love
The maiden tells him then thereof
That there is only one who her heart is for
And it’s the fisher who she believes saved her

And so the maiden, in kindness and laughter
Finds the man and declares her love after
Their wedding will happen at that midnight
To celebrate dawn’s coming light

pulls them in like little boys and girls
lost in the woods, in the safe embrace
Of a candy cottage

I love you, so I let you walk away.
I love you, so you can't really stay.
I love you, so you can never be mine.
I love you, but that's not for me to decide
isn't it?

once upon a time, it was just you and me
there was nothing else to be.
the perfect pair, the perfect partner
there was no space to barter.

maybe that's how the years have changed us
the pain, the suffering, it fuels us.
once upon a time, I'd be happy with just you
now its the terror that runs through you too.

back to the present, on opposite sides
cries of the battlefield never reside
only a painting of blood remains, maybe
once upon a time was a dream all this time.

I loved you, so I let you walk away.
I loved you, so you couldn't really stay.
I loved you, so you could never be mine.
I loved you, but that's not for me to decide
is it?

Once upon a time,
A starry night,
A forgotten world.

Once upon a time,
Laughter heard,
Smiles traded.

Once upon a time,
Timeless reality,
Clock ticking obliviously.

Once upon a time,
Damsel in distress,
A fearsome dragon.

Once upon a time,
A Prince Charming,
All shining armor.

Once upon a time,
Timeless love,
Endless happiness.

Once upon a time,
A promise broken,
A clock rewound.

Once upon a time,
The spell of ages,
Heavily obscuring.

Once upon a time,
An open window,
Tendrils of smoke.

Once upon a time,
A fiery beauty,
A timid monstrosity.

Once upon a time,
Love forbidden,
Lives forsaken.

Once upon a time,
She fell in love with a dragon.
There are stories beneath those eyes.

Decadent cliffs before pools of spoken word to be cast into.

Between man's hope for calculated risk, and his knowing of coming sorrow, a delicate cusp where two eyelashes meet is accounted for as the wonderful pen it is to draw such sight.

A stare bathes your skin as a kiss from fullest lips. Dampening your nape, deepening your stomach, and quickening your heart.

A task begins to slow your breathing.

If a field of men were before such a cast, quickly they would lay, as battle has already been won. One bow pulled from the sturdiest of spines by the simple touch of where her mind might be,

Here's to you, looking upon me.
Gonna keep ******* with this one.
