Over time you have tamed me,
and you are my undoing.

You have taught me to be calm, quiet, patient, and trusting.
You gave me gentleness, and I unlearned a lifetime of selfishness.

Survival skills wasted on you, I forgot how to defend myself.
What protection is there from the thing that you can't see killing you?

My little murderer, golden-haired, speaking of roses and beauty like no other...
You taught me I was special.

You say you are leaving me, my Prince?
Will you really break this wild heart?

Go ahead and gouge at my soft underbelly.
I have forgotten how to fear you.
