Modern-Day Cinderella

Why do I insist
on torturing myself
by obsessing
over impossible fantasies?

My prince
on his brilliant white horse
is too crowded
by his loving people
to notice
the small girl
waiting in the corner.

My fairy godmother
ran away
beaten and bruised
by harsh reality.

My glass slipper shattered
long before "once upon a time",
leaving me hopeless.

Mirror mirror
on the wall,
who's the fairest of the all?
I ask this
and my reflection laughs.

My 7 dwarfs,
lies,
pain,
secrets,
judgement,
heartbreak,
disrespect,
darkness,
lead me
to the poison apple.
Take a bite.
(everyone's doing it)

Rub the lamp.
Make a wish
to be anywhere
but here.

Stepsisters
sneak away at night,
leaving me alone
to take talk to the mice.

The glimmer of Neverland
quickly dims
as Peter grows old, and withered.

Clock strikes 12.
Fantasies disappear.
Ring around the rosey,
we all fall dead.

I think this is really good. It is almost like my poem Wishing which is no where near as good as yours. So keep it up.
