Fairy Tale Lie
by SheaRyhai (c) 2009
Let's write your happy ending
love so true, life worth living,
fairy tale spiced with pretending
no pain exists, all is forgiven.
It hurts to smile but I will try,
It's not like you would ever ask why.
Let's draw up the Prince Charming
corrected and edited to your wish,
never demeaning, never harming
always sunrise with our kiss.
It hurt to love but I will try,
It's not like you feel it when I cry.
Let's plan the marriage complete with bells
white doves flying, flowers fragrant,
no need for makeup, eye's wont swell
say your “I do”s never “I can't”.
It hurts to let you run my life,
till death do us part I play the wife.
Let's build the castle stone by stone
mighty, strong, safe, secure,
not a prison where I feel alone
not shackled to bed by your love pure.
It hurts to let you open the door,
so why should we write anymore.
Shut the book its not worth reading
let it fade upon the shelf,
keep living life as if dreaming
fairy tale girls don't need any help.
It often hurt to say goodbye,
but to say so now would be a lie.
