My Fairytale's Illusion

by TinyDancer46

A heart he stole away from me
Right from my bleeding chest
And through the wounds, I gave him love
For he deserved the best

A treasure I held in my hands
That promised he would stay
My prince I had now, finally
He'd never go away...

But through the stormy weather
With the lies I failed to see
My prince had found a princess
And he loved her more than me...

Yet I couldn't see the damage
Through the dark storm, I was blind
Conceived by what I dreamed for,
Love was perfect in my mind...

Till one day, lightening struck me
My prince left without a trace
My broken heart screamed out his name
While tears poured down my face

Now I'm crying on this wooden floor
Wishing then I knew
That fairy-tales are make-believe
And dreams do not come true

I love your poem. I look around at my family and I see that there's only a few happy endings. I've come to realize that fairy tales are just that. They are make believe. Telling the little girls that you can fall in-love in an instant and live happily ever after. When in the real world you don't.

The words, the lines.. every part of the poem is getting inside the reader, and though i have a happy life with my partner i can feel the pain. it deserves a 5/5. great work!
