Once upon a time she loved unconditionally. Gave her entire being. Her soul his to rapture, to ravage in bliss. Some would say sin. She sought within. Seeing what he never forbade. Revealing his truth. Her mind his escape. But soon it was taken from her grasp. And she left alone. Aimlessly wondering the woods. Lost and confused. Her heart became brick. Solid, for no one to abuse. Not even the big bad wolf and his mischievous muse. She honored him despite for he taught her well. Taught her to guard herself more. Never allowing another spell. Consumed on her own she would forever be. Removing the red cloak, she left it with her scent. No longer the fairytale of the red hood but instead the woman she was meant.
