I am nought but a pauper,
trying to earn his wage.
Living a meager existence, 
worse than death.

You are a radiant princess,
shining with gilded light.
A purposed existence,
lived with numbness.

The day was fated,
to be a joyous one.
When your hollow light,
reflected off my tired eyes.

Blinded by beauty,
and stricken with sorrow
A pauper did the unthinkable,
and shed tears for the princess.

The princess saw the tears
and for the very first time
felt her heart leap,
for someone finally saw her pain.

And so pauper and princess wept together,
bound by sorrow,
strenghtened by love,
and joined forever in happiness.



For Sarah.
