"Dance like no one's watching.Sing like no one's listening.Love like you've never been hurt. Live like its heaven on earth." -Mark Twain

I wish for true love
something real, that I can feel
like in a fairy tale

Alas, I'm no princess
I can slay my own dragon
I can save myself

Hey there, Prince Charming,
can you love a warrior,
a strong girl like me?

I carry a sword
not a bouquet of flowers
I don't wear a crown

Could you ever like me?
Combat boots and all?
Tell me now, Charming.

Don't waste my time
Prince Charming, I'm busy
so do you like me?

Don't try to save me
I don't need that, I need you
for you to be you

I'm climbing down
I hate heights anyways,
Tired of waiting

Now is your chance
do you want to ride off
into the sunset?

your time is up now
go find yourself a princess
I want Robin Hood

This is a great poem on all different levels -  a mixture of sarcasm, honesty and romanticism - I love it

Syllable count off sometimes, but great idea and otherwise well-executed.
