Poem: Happy Endings

She’s grown up on stories
Of princesses in castles
With long flowing hair
And knights that chase after
Their happy endings
Sealed with a kiss
So she purses her lips
Looking for her prince
But finds nothing there
Except imaginary lovers
With all their flaws showing
And she’s wondering if
All the things she dreamed
Can even really exist
If the only happy ending
Is the one she pretends
That she’s happy with
