Poem: Despite Your Heart Of Gold (I’m Not The One You Need To Save)

Stop me of you’ve heard this one
Stop me if it’s the same old story
The princess forgot to live the fairytale
And now we pay the price

The princess is captured
By a beast  – the dragon
And only the bravest warrior can save her
Can kill the monster
And win her heart

And you’re living this scene
Like you’re the hero
The knight in shining
Whatever
That’s not what I want
I could save myself
But I don’t need saving

You’re living this scene
Like the hero
And I’m the princess
The victim
Damsel in distress
Let down your hair
But I cut it all off
If only to keep you away
I can handle it

You’re living this scene
Like you’re the hero
I’m the princess
And to save me you have
To kill the dragon
I’m not the princess

But
Who said the dragon wasn’t my friend
Who said I wanted him dead
If I wanted him dead I’d have put
The dagger in his heart myself
I don’t need you to do my dirty work

I am not the princess
But you’ve deluded yourself into
Being the hero
With a savior complex
For a girl that doesn’t need to be saved

Who’s to say I’m not the dragon
I’m not the one you slay
In the effort to find the girl
The one who doesn’t exist

Whose to say you don’t trick me
And burn me with my own fire
Who’s to say
I don’t kill you myself
Who’s to say
You get away clean

And this is not a fairytale
If it was it be Grimm
If I’d have written it
I’d give us a happily ever after
But I didn’t

So the best we get
Is used to be
And
Blood on the sheets

The best we get
Is
Illusions of grandeur
And
Hearts broken all around

You get to be the hero
At least in your mind
And me
I’m lucky that I make it out alive
