Hello, Prince Charming, where's your crown?
Hello, Prince Charming, where's your sword?
Hello, Prince Charming, why the frown?
Haven't you been here before?

The castle is a ruin now
Overgrown and void of light
The castle's thrones are empty now
Broken down and out of sight
The treasure's long since gone away
No one's here to host
Even the dragon didn't stay
Who wants to live with ghosts?

I wish I was wrong
I wish I could lie
I wish you were gone
I wish you would die
You were too late
This time has passed on
I wish you could stay
I wish I was wrong

Hello, Rumpelstiltskin, come you to help me?
Hello, Rumpelstiltskin, have you some bread?
Hello, Rumpelstiltskin, come you to save me?
I don't think you can help the dead

The spinning wheel's rotted away
There is no straw to spin
Into gold to light the day
To invite life in again
All your tricks and all your spells
Can never be used again
Go jump into a wishing well
And let your life begin

I wish I was wrong
I wish I could lie
I wish you were gone
I wish you would die
You were too late
This time has passed on
I wish you could stay
I wish I was wrong

Hello, Sleeping Beauty, you still sleeping in?
Hello, Sleeping Beauty, you still dreaming?
Hello, Sleeping Beauty, will you ever wake again?
Or forever lay there sleeping?

The hundred years have come and gone
The kingdom's faded away
Yet you lay here, still as stone
Dreaming your life away
Do you want to see the cold despair?
Dead to all the things you knew?
Your dreams would turn into nightmares
I'd stay asleep if I were you

I wish I was wrong
I wish I could lie
I wish you were gone
I wish you would die
You are too late
This time has passed on
I wish you could stay
I wish I was wrong

I wish you were right
I wish you were right
I wish the fairytale was true
I wish I could believe in you
I wish you were right
I wish you were real
I wish you'd been there all along
I wish so much that I was wrong

I wish I was wrong
I wish I could lie
I wish I was gone
I wish I could die
This life I've lead
Has passed along
I wish I could leave
I wish I were wrong

Haha, thanks, sure, go ahead, it's not like it's copyrighted or anything, lol.  And I'll try, but my life is a whirlwind of applications, colleges and plans.  I'll do what I can with the time God's given me. :-)

what if you left a new comment saying its called reality check. or you could make a sequal to this and name it reality check if it has the same concept, it could be like a follow-up. but i'm sure someone willl read this comment and say "yeah, that is a better title."

Thanks, I enjoy pessimism, as well, since I can't seem to write anything else...I think I should have called this "Reality Check" it would have made more sense...haha Sleeping Beauty waited so long for her happy ending, she died.  But I figured that's a little TOO pessimistic--though I was thinking it--and I already took care of the romance part with Prince Charming. 

 

Thanks again! :-)

"il piu nell' uno," (according to Emerson, an Italian expression for beauty)

"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality" ~Emily Dickinson

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain"
~Kahlil Gibran

I loved this; it had great rhythm. I think it would make quite an enjoyable song. It was a bit depressing, but I savor a little pessimism in a poem.

As for sleeping beauty, and why she's slept so long, has anyone checked for a pulse?
