White Horse Rider

Amid the darkest darkness
In the blackest night
Hides a hidden hero
Frightened by the light
The things she dare not dream of
The fantasies she fears
Arms wrapped tight around herself
As the dragon nears

Nightmares she never notices
Not now they seem mundane
She’s trapped inside a moment
Paralysed by pain
She bottles up the feelings
Fills up with guilt and shame
Her wounds are left to fester
And he’ll be back again

Where is the white horse rider?
Where could the heroes be?
Where is her salvation?
When can she be free?
Why do they just leave her?
She suffers all alone
Waiting for a hero
To come and take her home

Blood runs down her body
As tears run down her face
Dragon wings enfold her
She surrenders to his embrace
Fiery breath burns her mind
Steals her hopes and dreams
Bile taste fills her throat
As she chokes on swallowed screams

Where is the white horse rider?
Where could the heroes be?
Where is her salvation?
When can she be free?
Why do they just leave her?
She suffers all alone
Waiting for a hero
To come and take her home

Somewhere deep inside her heart
A spark of hope still lives
The only thing that comforts her
Is the tiny warmth it gives
The cold cannot quite kill her fire
She struggles to her feet
The dragon stares at her in shock
As it feels her hidden heat

A burning sword finds her hand
A shield built out of pride
She arms herself with every hope
For too long she had to hide
Her battle cry shakes the walls
The prison falls apart
This is not the end of her life
This is just the start

She is the white horse rider
A hero, she is free
She is her own salvation
It could be only she
No one ever left her
She wouldn’t let them near
Now the heroes help her
To chase away her fear
She is the white horse rider
A hero, she is free
She finally found salvation
Her serenity
