Reality of a Happily Ever After


The fairytale story ended
An unexpected tragedy was born
Their happy ending suspended
Their dreams had been expected to be torn

The shining prince wed the princess
No thank you to the ones who gave up their love
The guardians were the sole witness’
Making it all right before they fell from above

They smiled as they endlessly danced
Only one gets to wear the wedding dress
No longer can hope be romanced
Wearing the tears never to be expressed

Enduring all of the world’s pain
Living for that single face’s pure smile
Fighting on, knowing there was no gain
Was the suffering really all worthwhile?

Giving up their love for a friend
Which one was truly the most deserving?
Who deserved the real happy end?
They still remained steadfast and unswerving

Now unable to even speak
The backstage lovers remained united
Slipping downward the tear will streak
The shared true love remains unrequited

The ending for the call of duty
Shielding the perfect couple’s destined love
Choosing to live without beauty
Living, yet lacking all passion thereof

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
