a fallen fairytale

i don’t want you to be
just another tear-stained page
in my diary
so please
just this once
prove me wrong
and show me what I’ve believed
all along

and if you’re gonna go telling me I’m beautiful
then turn and watch her walk down the street
i’ll say right now
don’t waste your time
i’m not a dine-and-ditch type of girl

i see inside
who you really are
and I know that man
is the one I’ve been waiting for
laughing with
talking to
falling for
all these years
waiting for him to grow up and notice
the girl who is holding her breath
the only breath
that she has left
waiting for you to be her heaven

but then the moment comes
the horrible splitting sound
that rips her world to pieces
the moment when she turns around
and he’s not there
and for a split second her breath is stilled inside
as the realization smashes into her
that he wasn’t who she wanted him to be
all that time
he was exactly. Who. He. Was.
she turns to the last page
and a tear falls
a silent dying scream from this princess
for the happily ever after
that would never exist
