A Ballad Of A Princess

I leaped to her balcony
As I landed down
I couldn’t think what would cause her such agony
To make her replace her smile with a frown

I peeked in the window
I saw Marinette
Head under a pillow
I hoped she hadn’t done it yet

I knocked on the panel
She jumped a little there
But I knew she could handle
A little scare

She opened up
There I saw the harm
My words stuck
She had slit her arm

I asked, reached out
She moved back
I heard her shout
She thought it was an attack

Marinette, I pleaded
She looked at me
I asked why she felt that she needed
To cut her blood free

She had a stutter
A shaky voice
I knew it didn’t matter
The stutter wasn’t her choice

What mattered is why
Would she do this
To make herself cry
And make her feel amiss

I heard her hum
To help calm her down
So she wasn’t numb
To replace her frown

I called her “princess”
For even down
And in distress
She wore a crown
