You'll know
when you're in love, they say.
What if you don't?
What if Prince Charming
Isn't all that?
What if he's not
Maybe he's the mess.
Or the one that speaks his mind.
Or the one suffering
from personal agony, finding a safe haven in self-expression
of any kind.
You'll know
if you've done the right thing, they say.
What if you don't?
What if, even for an instant,
you doubt?
The correct was waiting in the wings,
hiding in the shadowy corner
like a villain,
disguised as the wrong?
Maybe I can escape
the insecurities, the doubts
once I fall asleep.
In my dreamland fairytaile,
Snow White will teach me to forget
As we sit by the well.
And she'll show me how to
Leave my misconceptions in the dust,
If only for a moment,
Just long enough to start a
"Once upon a time"
If not long enough
To scrawl defiantly
"And they lived happily ever after."
