Paradise Bitten

fantasy-2913983_1280
There lies the apple that stopped her heart
Gone a chosen life with its nasty black art

Because the witch demands love and beauty and price
A man was required and thought a kiss should suffice

She never wanted to fall in love, especially with a fool
But the price for freedom was to live under his rule

Never asking to be a bride or a wife
She took up her skirts and ran for her life

The witch was careless and left the apple behind
And with one big bite, a death note was signed

Freedom comes in the ways we demand
And by sleeping forever she chose her dreamland
