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
