Prince Charming Complex

By CausticChlorine

Princes don't cheat. 

But princes force.

Princes don't do much.

Princes don't do much for you.

But here they are anyway. 

Princes keep girls caged.

They bleed them dry.

I bleed the girls I bled into. 

They never cry.

They taste like mother.

They taste like home. 

Princes don't do much.

Princes need to die.
