Princess Nevermore, dwelled in the misty shadows, for she was cursed and must forever dwell alone.
He came to her and dared to approch her shadowy existance,
She called out with alarm," Please do not approach me, keep your distance!
He said," I am drawn to you, I wish to take you away!"
She said," I am cursed to dwell alone, please leave without delay!"
He said," Princess, I wish to love you, won't you take my hand?"
She said," If you try to love me, you shall die, so please understand!"
" Don't love me, it will only cause you pain",
" I will only bring confusion and drive you quite insane!"
She refused to take his hand and tears began to well in her eyes,
They were the color of water colored skies.
" I am just here briefly, my name Is Princess Nevermore",
" The Dragon Of Depression, guards my door!"
" I have not a heart to give, it was turned to stone",
" A curse, has decreed that I must
" For many years I was shackled in the castle of The Ice Queen",
" I was locked away, never to be seen".
" I never smiled, my constant tears, became shards of ice",
" I dwelled in the shadowy gloom, no smile could be inticed!"
" Cursed to always dwell alone",
" Never to be loved, I must be a nomad and always roam!"
Then she started to tremble and weep,
Ice shards from her eyes did seep.
" Please go! Save yourself! I demand that you leave my sight!"
" We dare not love each other, for you shall die and that is not right!"
He begged," No Princess! I love you, please let me try!"
So against her better judgement, she kissed him and he died!

|We all "die" when desire takes the place of knowledge.
Such a sad tale, but such a lesson to be learned.

|(ok kill the music) the princess did what she had to do and the Knight did what he had to do,it's all really pretty simple,and I'm sure the Knight felt he had honored his heart,(which is very important to Knights)but still SC this was a tear jerker,I'm going soft i guess,

|I like the way this one did not have a really happy ending and gave a good moral lesso...sometimes desire isn't always what it's cracked up to be...

Quite a sad story with a devastating ending. Life comes with caution or danger signs but ignorance is Always bliss. Peace and Blessings to You Always, Paul.
