I Spend My Days Like Cinderella - Poem by Asif Andalib

I spend my days like Cinderella
I want a prince of America
I love to dance like Cinderella
I want to live in America

I squeeze my pillow at night
Thinking of holding him tight
In my arms and in my bed
Why God acts like He is dead

I change the channel of TV
May be He is in the movie
I look for him in the web
But I find nowhere my babe

I have waited for so long
To write and sing a love song
Only for him for the dance
So no one else stand a chance

    sometimes what one wishes for is not what one wants
    remember cinderrala wore glass slippers
    had one broken her foot would have cut (Report) Reply

    Oh the sweet discomfort of longing. A real double edged sword. Adorable (Report) Reply

    Oh the addictive discomfort of longing! A double edged sword. This is adorably childlike, not in the construction, but the memories it unfolds! (Report) Reply
