Ever After

-and they got married
and lived

Ummm, no.

If you haven't noticed,
not every little girl
turns out to be a princess.

And little boys
are far more interested
in pulling a little girl's hair
than sweeping them off their feet.

It's not the
"happily ever after"
that makes the story.

It's the drama,
the passion,
the struggle.

The tragedy

So, in the end,
everyone lives
tragically ever after.

They're just lucky,
if they've managed to stay
in their fairytale.

Even if it was only just for a little while.

Happy New Year's everybody!

Reviews are loved, the people who write them even more so.
