Out of the Fireplace ...

Madeline Holland

The beautiful thing about fairy tales
They end in happily ever after
No tomorrows, no ensuing details
Only wedding bells and tinkling laughter
In her gown and glass shoes that magic night
She did not realize what she had begun
But what happened when Charming wasn’t quite?
And they found that in common they had none
Except for small, breakable shoes and vows?
Oh, Fairy Godmother, where are you now?
