Fairytale Lies

but from that, lessons derived

I question the lessons of fairytale movies

which now more than ever feel like a lie

narratives that push beliefs my heart

will never become a serendipitous find

detaching the rope attached to a third of my life

riddled with cynicism to linger in places

clearly displaying no vacancy signs

seldom allowing myself to forget to suffer

often required by leaving pieces behind

My life that has come and gone

in the blink of an eye

And only now that I have begun to ponder

the musings of those who choose to wander

instead of wasting time to discover

arbitrary fairytale crimes
