I Guess I’ll Save Myself

My heart hurts
And I hear the thunderous beating
In my ears
Drowning out the silence
That surrounds me
In this dark room

The walls closed in
As you left
And it was my fault
Yet again
I’m to blame
For feeling so much

I should really learn
How to keep my walls up
I should wield my own sword
At the dragons
Keeping me in this tall tower
But that was your job

I hoped that just once
The knight would come
To rescue me
But you passed by
On your way, once again,
To another princess’s tower
