Damsels

You may not be a damsel in distress
Nor need a hero
Let me assure you I’m fine just as I
Am so I don’t need
You to try and change me make me
Over in your image
I can make my own sandwich or I’ll
Just go to subway
I don’t need to be a hero or for you
To make me better
All I want is for you to love hold me

Heartstring Eulogies

“And I’m sorry to tell you this,
but I’m no damsel in distress.”

Let me be clear, I didn’t need you to save me, but it would have been nice to have you there by my side. To know you’d be there regardless. But I guess the truth of the matter is that you couldn’t handle not being the hero. You never wanted a woman that could stand on her two feet without some assistance. And I’m sorry to tell you this, but I’m no damsel in distress.
