She said, "Life is made of fairytales, you can see, open your eyes.

She told me "Open up your heart to these happy tales and look up at the star-filled skies."


I gave it some thought and tried to take her word, but something still left me feeling like a black sheep in the herd.


He said, "Think happy thoughts, you will soon recover."

With my stomach still in knots, I tried hard to trust my lover


I'm still broken, outspoken yet heartbroken

With all the strength in me, I tried, but reality hit when I was awoken


They said my savior would come, but I'm still here coming undone

Where would anyone come from? The waiting has begun


I tried their ways but I'm still lost in this haze

Fairytales are lies, my trust has been set ablaze


I see that it's all on me

There's no happy ending

One day they all will see

My pain is never-ending


A little self-reflection shows they're condescending

Look at them, always pretending

Yet I am still broken; no chance of mending

Soon they'll see me as I am descending


Looking from the very edge

No fear when I'm on the ledge

I vowed to make a pledge

I'll fall with wings outstretched


Fairytales are fake and I know that I can't fly

At least I have a story to tell before I say goodbye
