ODE TO THE DESPAIRING PRINCE

THIS WAS WRITTEN SEVERAL YEARS AGO FOR A SPECIAL FRIEND OF MINE~~~~

10/20/04

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A FAIR MAIDEN

WHO LIVED IN A CASTLE

FAR, FAR AWAY

A PRINCE ADMIRED HER FROM AFAR

THINKING OF HER EVERYDAY

A HORRIBLE TROLL KEPT HER UNDER LOCK AND KEY

ANOTHER PRINCE CAME AND SAVED HER

BUT SHE FOUND OUT IT WAS ALL A DISGUISE

AND HE WAS REALLY A GOBLIN PRETENDING TO BE A MAN

SO SHE RAN AWAY AND MET A HANDSOME BARD

WHO SANG HER SONGS OF LOVE

SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS WAY AND IS TOGETHER WITH HIM

TO THIS DAY

THE FIRST PRINCE WHO HELD HER HEART WAS WALKING

THROUGH THE DEEP DARK FOREST IN HOPES TO BE WITH THE

PRINCESS ONE DAY, WHEN ALONG THE WAY,

HE BECAME ENTRANCED WITH A LOVELY MAIDEN WHO WAS REALLY A HARPY IN DISGUISE.

SHE HAD A CRYSTAL BALL AND SHOWED HIM THE PRINCESS WITH HER NEW LOVE

HIS HEART WAS SADDENED.

HE FELL INTO DESPAIR

THE FAKE MAIDEN CAPTURED HIM WITH A HORRIBLE POTION

AND THUS CAUSED HIM TO FEEL NO PAIN

HE THEN DECIDED IN HIS FORCED STUPOR THAT THE FOREST

WASN’T SO BAD AFTER ALL AND DECIDED TO STAY WITH THE HARPY MAIDEN

ALL THE WHILE CATCHING GLIMPSES IN THE BALL OF THE PRINCESS.

THIS AT LEAST GAVE HIM SOME FEELING THAT HE THOUGHT WAS LOST.

SO HE TOOK HIS LOVE AND LOCKED IT AWAY AND

HE DREAMED OF A BETTER LIFE SOMEDAY.

THE PRINCESS SENT A MESSAGE ONE DAY ON THE WINGS OF A DRAGONFLY

TO THE PRINCE WITH JUST THESE TWO SENTENCES.

“I STILL CARE AND REMEMBER WHAT NEVER WAS AND NEVER CAME TO BE.”

“YOU ARE STILL IN MY HEART AND ALWAYS SHALL BE.”

SO ALAS ENDS THIS CHAPTER OF THE TALE.

WHERE IT GOES FROM HERE, ONE NEVER KNOWS.

LIFE IS ONE BIG NEVERENDING RIDE

THE BUMPS JUST MAKE IT MORE MEANINGFUL…

SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD FOR A FAIRY TALE DOESN’T IT?
