Not happily ever after

Written by: Emma Anonymous

Beautiful and elegant
She mops the kitchen floor
Standing close to an old wooden door

Determined and prepared 
She starts to climb
Up the wall, to the clock, 
so she can have more time

Surprised and startled
She looks so pale
Among seven small people,
all of them male

Sad and depressed 
She begins to cry 
In the small empty room
where her prince said goodbye
