I don't need you to be
the Hero of my story
-because I am.
I will not wait for another Knight in Shining Armor,
only to find his Hamartia
is more fatal to me than to him
I will not wait,
I will not trap myself in a tower
Ever-Searching for your arrival along the horizon
I will save myself.
I will fight my own demons.
I will not trap myself in a tower like those before me,
I will make my own escape.
And when you decide to make your way here to save me,
The only thing left will be
The empty promises you gave me
