Once Upon a Time, I Lived Happily Ever After

As a kid,
I believed in fairytales.
In Once Upon a Times
and Happily Ever Afters.

But after I got my knees bruised
And overcome puberty blues
I learned you can’t make good poetry
Without getting your heart abused.

(LOL! Bad poetry. Bad poetry. No wait, this isn’t even poetry. Just finish it, so you can shut it up. 😂😂😂)

But then I grew up,
So it’s Once upon a time,
I handed my heart over
To several wrong people
And that is okay
Because Once upon a time
I learned, I loved, I gave it my all
I fall, I failed, I was on my knees
But it wasn’t the end I know
I cried, I prayed, I still believed
That magic happens, unexpectedly
I got up, I continued despite,
I smiled, I tried
And licked my wounds in silence
I made a note to self
That if Once upon a time,
Handing your heart over
Doesn’t make feel like a princess
That is okay
He may not be your prince yet
And it matters less if he ever come along or find you first or find you at all
Because it is when you know your worth and love yourself first,
That you’d live happily ever after.

You Are My Happy Fairy Tale

Once in my sleep I dreamed a wish
I was a princess and you are my prince
With castles and dragons and ugly witches
With potions and spells and magic fences

Isn’t that too good to be true?
Isn’t this story too fairy taley beau?
Can you be the prince who’d save me?
A princess locked in tower of misery

Come prince, draw closer to me fast
My precious knight please run if you must
Don’t stop by anywhere the witch is nearby
She may cast you a spell thru a lullaby

The kiss that I sent through the wind
I hope may reach you my special friend
The wounds from your fight I will tend
The pieces of your heart I will mend

Like a long time ago in a far far away
Can you be that man that would save the day
Be the love that wont go away
Or again my heart will go astray

My sweet, I heard that true love
Doesn’t have a happy ending
Because it just does not end
Forever and ever it keeps burning

I’ve been told that it does not exist
Happy ever afters or brave princes
But in my dreams, without fail
You are my happy fairly tale
