I'm sad today-- memories of a princess--

I'm sad today

Because I let all the best in me, turn and walk away
I miss the way you'd laugh at the absurd things that I'd say
The hours and the patience spent, driving home the truth
I'm not funny, I'm not special, I'm not ANYTHING without you
The castle that you conjoured with your hope and dreams and charms
Mean nothing for the princess who was banished from your arms
I never meant for ice to form and futher cool the breeze
Developed from the manic time I brought you to your knees

Oh god I'm sorry
said the princess to the wind
as she tries to recall the moment her mind became unhinged

My hands enshroud my face as I remember wistfully
All that love I took for granted, just cos I believed
There there was more than this, than us, than nights blurred into day
No sense of time. 
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Though I'd erase the times I turned my back on precious things
That I discarded, disregarded the ecstacy love brings
Still trapped by my own selfishness, beat by my vehemence
Fighting back emotion as I suffer every consequence
I know we said we're soulmates but Im sorry, mine was sold
It's sudden, bitter lifelessness had started growing mould
My shallow breaths were not enough, I failed you again
I couldn't keep the one last thing that kept me safe and sane 

wailed the princess to the sea
and let go of the cliffside, she fell eternally.
