The Princess

Awakened by the midnight thunder
A sense of sorrow washes over me
No one sees what lies under
I only wish to be free

I saunter to the castle window 
My last cry, the final plea
My pain is as boundless as the sea
I commence my crescendo

Is there anyone out there,
Willing to keep me safe and warm
Willing to shelter me from the storm
Is there anyone, somewhere?

One that shields me from malice
He who would unbind my sight
He who would kiss me in the moonlight
Will anyone make it to my palace?"

My song ends with a sigh
A single tear falls from my eye
No one understands my despair
I am alone and beyond repair
The Solider

Awakened by the midnight thunder
A sense of panic washes over me 
Though my heart is torn asunder
I cannot ignore her plea 

I rush into the streets 
Blood soaks the cobblestone
The clatter of metal, agonizing shrieks 
With a determined brow, I head toward the throne

I enter into the bloodshed
Swinging, Slaughtering, Slicing
Exchanging blows, fearlessly fighting
Steadily stepping over the dead

Her song is my serenity
Amongst all this brutality
Her melody is my destiny
Amongst all the hostility

Her voice is my sustenance,
Her silhouette is my water,
She is my conductance
And I, her protector
