The HeRo doesn't always get the girl

I thought her love was real,

 since I saw her I wanted to make her mine

 I thought we could be together

 happy as can be with a brilliant shine

 I am the hero that rescued her from the dragon.

 Though I knew it may never work

 it's enough to pretend

 while wearing a fake grin

 my heart is unsatisfied

 knowing I lied

 telling myself it was going to be okay.

 But  watching my tears drop to my feet

 while listening to the sound of my heart beat

 and trying to remember  "OUR" happy momments

 our perfect times

  someone stole her heart before me

 I realized...  That she was within my grasps, she was all mine.
