Once upon a time
there lived a pirate and a princess,
The princess had never much felt like royalty,
and the pirate’s world had grown too dark for him to see the light within himself
After a life of loneliness, wandering, doing what it took to survive,
they both stopped believing in fairy tales, or in magic.
they had stopped believing in themselves.
But then, the very thing they’d both given up on,
brought them together.
Through time and space, and everything in between,
their two lost souls managed to find each other.
For the two kindred thieves,
it didn’t take long to steal each other’s hearts.
The two survivors
soon realized they’d die for the other.
The two that were once abandoned
would now never leave the other’s side.
Because the pirate
treated the princess like the royal she was.
And the princess
cast away the shadows in the pirate’s heart, and vowed to only see the light.
And so, the two who thought they meant nothing to the world,
eventually became each other’s everything.
And to think that, from the very start,
they were always going to be each other’s happy ending.
