Searching for Prince Charming - Ballade

Written by: Diane Locksley

 
Was it loneliness that convinced me to pursue
Yet one more futile try, another mismatched mate
The years pass quickly and the choices become few
On eligibility’s scale I fail to rate
A magical connection I cannot create
My heart grows fatigued, a feeling so alarming
Should I place my future hopes in the hands of fate
Many are alone; where do you hide, Prince Charming
 
I’m weary of searching yet feel I must renew
The “frogs” say it’s my fault, but I recriminate
I only kiss them hoping my dreams would come true
No princes emerge; they only retaliate
By leaving me alone on weekends with no date
Do they realize it’s my ego they’re harming
Happily ever after endings I inflate
Many are alone; where do you hide, Prince Charming
 
For years I’ve sought you out and now I think I’m through
This path I have traveled I am forced to negate
Just like the fly that escaped when the frog’s tongue flew
Blessings of solitude I once did understate
So now I’ll just accept this solitary state
A stone fortress around my heart I’m now arming
The seasons have flown past and I fear it’s now too late
Many are alone; where do you hide, Prince Charming
 
Efforts expended but results do not equate
I realize it’s only myself I’ve been harming
No longer will I ask, questioning does abate
Many are alone; where do you hide, Prince Charming
