Prince Charming

 

A girl made a wish,

a wish to find her own prince.

She fell in love with the idea

and fell harder ever since.

Once he landed in her life,

she knew she couldn’t be saved.

And the gap between her and her wish,

was slowly being paved.

He was the perfect fit,

the silhouette matched from head to toe.

But she omitted to see his danger,

she refused to see his shadow.

She was shy and buried her words,

while he wore his heart on his sleeve.

It never even crossed her mind,

that he’d be first to leave.

She became so invested,

her priorities rearranged.

It seemed harmless at the time,

that was, until he changed.

He no longer held her hand,

or even looked her in the eye.

His heart made a shift,

and kept misplacing all his lies.

She was far too naive,

so naive she didn’t know,

that the promises and secrets shared,

were only there for show.

The thought of it was too hard,

she wanted it to be fake.

That the prince who once found her glass slipper,

is kissing another girl awake.
