Happily Ever After?

by dianarasmussen

There’s an empty box of Kleenex, she cries out in fear
She stands in disbelief realizing he’s not there
20 years of marriage flushed down the drain
He met up with someone else as she stands numb with pain

No more Prince Charming, Snow White will not wake up
Cinderella’s slipper is smashed, it’s a quarter to twelve
Little Red Riding Hood got eaten by the wolf
3 Little Pigs are homeless now, Goldilocks met her end
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale

Her tears flow freely as she’s trying to let go
All her castles washed away, not the ending she had planned
Its lawyers and judges, contempt and child support
Truth is stranger than fiction in never-never land

No more Prince Charming, Snow White will not wake up
Cinderella’s slipper is smashed, it’s a quarter to twelve
Little Red Riding Hood got eaten by the wolf
3 Little Pigs are homeless now, Goldilocks met her end
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale
