I once dreamt of a castle by the sea
Inhabited by an evil queen.
She locked me up in the tower
where I used to dream of
My knight in shining armor,
Coming to rescue me.
For hours I would peer out of the
Tiny window and let out a sigh
For never did my knight in
Shining armor come to my side.
The evil queen, laughed and
Shouted out a curse,
“Never will you find true love
Never will he appear. You’ll forever
Be lonely and forced to disappear.”
Looking down from the tower, I
Saw a man appear
On a black steed he rode
His head held high
I called down to him,
“Kind sir, Please help me.”
Only he kept riding.
“Sir!” Shouted I once more,
But still he kept going.
I let out a cry, my tears fell
To the ground.
He could not hear my sound.
The evil queen, she began to laugh
At my misfortunes.
“You see my dear,” She called to me
“He cannot hear you, for you are invisible.”
Away she went, her cackle echoed through
My tower. I shan’t cry, I can’t give her power.
Days went by, the snow fell
Ice covered the bars on my tower window.
Silence echoed through my mind.
I heard the hooves of many a steed
Come running towards the castle by the sea.
I cried! I yelled! I shouted! Yet still, no one
My head I hung low, my sobs were all that
I could hear.
The evil queen, once again came to me
And laughed at my pitiful self.
“Once again, you fool,” She bellowed
“No one can hear your cries.” She
Flicked her hair and walked down the
Winding stair, once again her cackle
Alone in my tower I sat on my bed,
Feelings of dread, I longed to be dead.
What good is it to never be heard?
What good can come of never being seen?
Alone I will sit, in my tiny tower
In the castle by the sea
Inhabited by the Evil Queen.
