She is nothing more than a damsel in distress to them - a girl who needs to be saved, but the truth is, she’s grown accustomed to her tower. They call to her, and she obliges, letting her hair down to them, watching them climb to her, but none of them every notes the bones of the men before them entangled in the briar below. They see her high walls as a way to keep her in, when they have become a way to keep them out, and the last thing they hear before they meet the ground far below is a sweet lullaby - calling to the next man who believes it’s his born duty to rescue her.
