She stood in her balcony
Wringing her hands
Her knight had stood her up Again, crashing all her plans.
An emergency meeting by the king
Had taken him away to far off land
She stood desolate and forlorn
No suitor to ask for her hand.
As serendipity would have it
Lost and hungry, a horseman rode in
He was provided food and shelter
She had company for dine in.
Lonesome and heart sore
She revelled in his attention that night
He was kind and sweet
So unlike the dark knight.
He stayed on for a few days
Then sought permission to leave
She was once again heartbroken
Why did fate always deceive!
Seeing her condition broke his heart too
But he had a dark secret
He just couldn’t reveal
How he too wished that never had they met!
How could he ever tell her the truth
He was actually also a hairy troll
And his two divergent personas
Made him a complete whole!
