Once upon a time
There was this weak girl
Covered herself with sheets
And covered her face
With cold frozen fingers
And cried till she fell asleep
 
Once upon a time
She met her superhero
Who made her feel special
Made her feel different
Made her feel safe
But he had to always leave
 
Once upon a time
There was a brave girl
Inside that other weak one
She is going to tell him
And so she did
She just loved him
 
Once upon a time
He promised
She would always be safe
He will always be there
But he was busy again
And he had to leave
 
Once upon a time
She went back to crying
She was weak and lost
She was waiting
For him to come back
But he didn’t
 
Once upon a time
She waited for him
But life
Drove him further away
And he is never ever
Going to come back
 
Once upon a time
She puts her weighted heart
In his hands
He swears to keep it safe
But he doesn’t know
So little did he know
 
Once upon a time
He thought he was her friend
That is what she was to him
But she couldn’t pretend
He was her superhero
He was her hope
 
Once upon a time
She was always wandering
Who is he now?
What is he up to?
But she was so terrified
To try to find out
