Chasing The Fairytale - Poem by Gina Marie Moody

Daisies and dollhouses,
plucked petals and prose,
Barbie and Ken,
lovers or foes?

Dancing delusions,
Cinderella in red,
Snow White lies snoring
in a shattered glass bed.

Fairytales are sweet
like silk and cheap wine,
they charm the senses
and mystify the mind.

Yet, you wake in a tangle,
pain twisting your head...
Happily-ever-after
is just something once read.
