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.

I liked the way you said we were doomed from the beginning, blinded from the start. I can relate to this. I've been in these situations where you thought it was all perfect  because you refused to see the bad ending.

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from winning the game.
Don't ever let someone tell you can't, when you can.
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are shooting stars.

i really like the style of this poem..
