Six years after defeating the Labyrinth, Sarah accidentally lets the Goblin King back into her life.

It was a Friday afternoon of late September and Sarah Williams was sitting under a tree in the park where she used to hang out when she was younger. The sun was playing hide and seek with some clouds, but it was still warm enough to enjoy staying outside. The leaves on the trees were already turning yellow and red, and Sarah usually loved to just sit and draw all the colors of fall. Acting had always been her greatest passion, but she soon realized drawing was her favorite hobby. After high school she had decided to set her dreams of theater stages and costumes aside and follow another, more practical interest: architecture.
That day, all she could draw were sad and grim scenes. After finishing the sketch of a man bleeding on a bench, sh

Thrown away and discarded?
Replaced with something new?
Ever feel trampled on and defeated,
Lost and all alone in a crowded world?
Look at you, sitting there withdrawn from reality,
Because it's easier?
Get up! Fight!
Don't let this get you down
There is more to life,
Find your courage,
Find your strength,
Let it all go.

There was so much I didn’t know
Wasn’t there more reason for you to stay?
Why did you have to go away?
I remember you standing next me
We were like family
Your smile lit up the whole room
But, I didn’t know what you were going through
If I could rewind the time I would not gain with you
I would take it
If living in the past meant another chance to hold you tight
I wouldn’t need a reply
If I could save your life
If I could hold your hand
If I could make everything better for you I would
If I could put your heart back together into to one piece
I would use all my strength to do so
But, now you’re gone
From this world
You didn’t have to go
You need to know that you were never alone
Tears pouring down your eyes
As you buried them into a pillow
Screaming out for a hero
Didn’t you see I was right there?
In arms reach
If only you could see that I’m more loving then your beloved pillow
Then you would know that every time y

For all the pain it's suffered me,
And miles down in the waters deep,
I pray for you your words to keep.
But words won't save you now, my dear;
The hand of Death is drawing near,
And so long I've kept you here
Gone for all the countless years.
Fear not, for I have kept your soul
And writ your heart into the role
The hero, the villain, never let go
Of the unspoken pain resolutions told.
Your sinews tie the pages tight,
And your heart of gold keeps the story right,
And so you became my silvered knight,
For you've rescued me from every plight.

above, with an angels tread
the light, but he was too bright
His tears and I gathered them,
precious, trembling droplets of dew
I waited, as I always have
in the shadows,
