Forget what you know, remember what you've forgotten.

She waits in her castle
Alone at the top
Expects her prince
Just yearns to drop

She lies in her castle
Of delicate glass
Her heart still beats
Yet at an impasse

She swims in her castle
Deep under the sea
Speechless and afraid
Her silence a plea

She rests in her castle
Sleeps in her bed
Dreams of her prince
Her heart far from dead

She cleans in her castle
Of hardship and pain
Sweeps and mops
And scrubs each stain

Her happy ending
Will not leave her castle
For she’s locked away
And it’s not worth the hassle
