I think I used to know you a long time ago... 

you were a princess who lived high in a castle.. 

and I... 

was an ugly troll who lived under a bridge.. 

but I used to watch you.. 

the way the breeze would flow through your hair... 

the way you laughed.. 

the way your eyes would make everyone around you glad you were near...

and I remember how happy I was... 

just to hear you walk across my bridge...

you once turned to look at me... 

and my heart stopped... 

and it has beat only once since then....

the days turned to years…

waiting for you to cross again…

my heart bound by your image…

my senses begging for your scent…

but in the end…

amidst fog and night…

as I lay curled and cold beneath my bridge…

my last breath whispering your name…

I knew it was other paths you had taken…

and my heart beat only that once…

and nevermore….
