To anyone who would listen

It was never going to happen

He listened,

He never doubted,

He never offered to rescue you,

(Like everyone else had)

He didn't act

No one did.

Not even him.

You didn't tell anyone

You had your pride

You had your wits

You had your brain

Wasn't that enough?

No prince was going to come

Pull you off the floor

And tell you it's alright

So you waited

And girl, was that the smartest thing to do?

You kept falling

But to everyone else

You just soared upwards

:~:

One day though,

You had to swallow your pride

You had to hold his hand and tell him you need him

There's no point lying, is there girl?

:~:

So,

You crept up and whispered in his ear

And told him

Sometimes a princess

Needs a prince

(And duct tape certainly helped as well,

For mending broken hearts)

Then you left

Hoping he'd come

:~:

Hold on tight girl

Cause one day your prince will come

Sweep you off your feet

Tell you it's all okay

You just gotta hold on

Till then

He came

He threw down a rope

With a hand and a smile

He was always going to help

Waiting in the wings

Really,

To rescue someone,

All along.
