A Hero With an El Camino

I don my cape,
Swishing and swinging.
A smile lines my face-
I open my door
and I set out.
My heart pumping
Looking for the star of the show.
One to fill the role-
I am the noble prince
She will be my princess-
My pockets
Clinking and swaying with the weight of my
“Gifts”
HA
What wonderful gifts they a-
but look there she is.
Such a pretty thing.
All min-
soon to be at least.
Beauty is fickle and fleeting.
Never meant to last.
Never meant to stay.
“Hello” I say
Do I know you? She asks
“You will.” I grin.
Get away from me! She shouts.
Leaning in-
“My darling dearest, I could never leave you!” I murmur in her ear.
A swift nick….
and she’s out like a light.
My gifts grow heavy in my pocket-
Let’s get going. They say.
My cloak flaps in response as We turn and leave

Click
The light flickers on
My eyes light up at
the sight of Her on my table.
I pull my “gifts” out of my pocket
Sharp and gleaming
...
“Let’s get started shall we?”
