Storybook Ending

Her ink stained lips have kissed to many a forgotten page
[Dragon's blood
And Phoenix down]
And her Prince Charming has yet to come
[Glass slippers
Shattering like stars]
So all she can do is gaze out her tower window
[Enchanted forests
Concealing poison apples]
Clutch the corroded and timeworn blade
[Cursed beasts
Tearing down castle walls]
Toss her childhood fables to the waltzing of the moon
[Even broken wings
Wish for happily ever afters]
And fly
[Once upon a time
There was a girl who became her own hero]
