Prince and Princess

There are no Prince Charmings
or happily ever afters
as the princess sits on her bed
waiting to be rescued from heartache
she grew up with the lies
that everything turns out fine
as soon as she is blessed
with true love’s kiss
but night after night she is alone
reminiscing on lovers lost
blaming herself
blaming fate
for keeping her trapped in pain
perhaps if she wasn’t fed lies
from the day she was born
she’d be more comfortable
being so dreadfully alone
someday she’ll look to the stars
and see the hope painted there
rather than broken promises
and deeply rooted despair
will someone save the princess
or will she save herself
or will she die upon that bed
ever waiting for her prince
drowned in puddle of tears
