Make Believe MAG

By Amanda Bush, Milan, IL

We were doomed from the beginning,
Blinded from the start,
But nothing can be done
To fool a happy heart.
With each smile and giggle,
Every embrace and every kiss,
We were shooting toward a happy ending,
And we missed.
Cinderella lost her slipper
And it was never found.
Prince Charming came too late,
Now no one’s sleeping sound.
Pillows are soaking wet,
Hopes are all lost.
No more dancing in the clouds.
Dreams have all been tossed.
The fairy-tale warmth has left us
As winter’s setting in.
The storybook reads the end,
But where should we begin?
Now your heart strives to be broken,
And you long for lonely nights
This time our ship is sinking
We’re going down without a fight.

My favorite part is: "Cinderella lost her slipper/And it was never found/Prince Charming came too late/Now no one's sleeping sound." It said more then the words that were put. Good work!

I am the author of my own life... unfortunately I'm writing in pen and can't erase my mistakes.

I can honestly say this is one of my favorite pieces I've ever read. It's very well put together and extremely relatable. I hope you didn't write this from personal experiences, because I've been through it. But if so, keep your head up!
