There was once a princess
who was wicked and dark
of soul and heart.
There was once a knight
who was good and pure,
HIs heart shone so bright.
The princess and the knight fell deep in love
But the princess gave the knight one condition:
He was only allowed to go out when stars shone above.
The knight accepted this and they were married, happily.
But every morning, the princess would rush around the castle,
before the dawn broke,
Before her true love woke
Closing windows and drapes locking doors
To shut out all light.
The princess never confessed
to why she did this
So all I can do is guess
And say that she did this
Because she knew that if her darling prince
saw the bright lights of day
he would see the darkness in her soul
And go away.
