Hair the color of the midnight sky
Glancing off the feathers of a raven’s wing.
His skin glistening with the promise of a new day 
Along with each whispered oath he would say.
Fairytales once came true,
Once upon a time
But not even Prince Charming could save me now
As I fell mesmerized by his pools of endless blue.
I never believed I’d fall in love
Given thanks to painful tragedies
Removing from my life the ones I loved
My world,
My light, my peace.
But when his touch echoed the thoughts of my own
Mirroring the things I wish I had shown,
Once upon a time
An unspoken truce displayed for all
Our love that always shone.
When I wasn’t fighting for my life
I wallowed away in broken silence 
Surrounded by my flowing tears
Shed for the one I came to love,
Who had me strung so tight.
The one I couldn’t help but free,
For there were many other greater than me.
