Not A Fairy TaleThere she sat, a princess in her castle. Alone in the tallest tower, left to die by those who wished her harm. Her worst enemy: herself, her knight in shining armor: none.
No one was coming to save her.
No one even cared she was there.
She was alone with nothing but her thoughts for company.
And ever so present were they.
"Secret," they had whispered. "Secret." Their soft monotone caressed her cheek. The affection of a love once lost.
"Nobody," another murmured. This one wrapped around her throat, threatening to choke. It never did, just gave her the ever present fear.
"Unrequited," said another, weaving in and out of the holes in her chest, bothering the still fresh wound.

Some movement shows itself to me,
Against the snowy glare;

You see, for him the bell did toll;
