You almost had me trusting you.
But one mistake is all it takes
And now I’m on to you.
I remember now why my walls are up.
I remember why I’m alone.
My mind stands guard as my heart’s sentry
And no prince or pauper will gain entry.
If I let you in, you’ll steal my heart
And dash off on another quest.
You’ll vanish into nothingness
Just like all the rest.
My marble tower is cold but safe
With armor, you can’t wound me
You alone may see the princess inside
But you can’t pierce this dragon’s hide.
You alone may see the girl within
But my heart won’t abide being hurt again.
