Modern Romance



Tales of romance and

fairies are all but fantasy

in this modern age

of cryptic texts and no second chance.


What chance do I have

to find a Prince Charming?

Independence is all I ever seek,

so I will wait and see

who will come my way

as I fight for my rights,

always a princess in disguise.


My reality is all but grounded

in the myths and legends

of ages past. No gods

to strike this lover's heart,

And tell me all is but lost.

So this tale must end.
