Ever After

I’ve got your once upon a time

But not your happily ever after

That lies dead ten feet behind me

I claim I found it that way

But I’m sure it’s my fault

At least in part

Because I knew, have always known

It never had a chance

Not with me holding its hand

Nothing beautiful ever does

Blame me if you want

But I did try, I did love you

In my own special way

But I’m sure it makes no difference

Not on a day like this

Your sun glistening

Through the rear view mirror

As I drive away

  1. Oh Stories, how I feel this. In particular,
    “Because I knew, have always known
    It never had a chance
    Not with me holding its hand
    Nothing beautiful ever does”
    This spoke to me. Thank you. Now… what do I do with it, that’s the thought for today.
