Sheltered girl,
locked away in tower
vigilantly hidden
from civilization.

She believes in
the illusion of protection
when tyranny
is the motivation.

She is treated
like a fragile object
not as a child
that needs to explore.

The world is full
of intrigue,
but also danger
so she is a recluse.

Once it was due
to parental guard,
now she doesn’t
know any different.
