The Prince Died In The End

The Prince Died In The End

A Poem by Kim Jimenez
"

"A fairy tale that is awfully twisted, because reality existed"

"
Once upon a time,
There’s a princess without a dime;
Working hard in a castle,
Life’s filled with hassle;


She thought fairy tale never existed,
For reality is awfully twisted;
A princess’ indebted life,
To her father’s second wife;


But found her new beginning,
When her heart starts beating;
The princess found her prince,
Happiness felt ever since;


First time feeling like a real princess,
Became a damsel in distress,
For a prince swept of her feet,
Life at last became sweet;


But suddenly felt his cold heart,
Broke her heart apart;
Wipe away her tears,
Begun planning facing her fears;


Believed no one will save her,
Took her things and run nowhere;
Abandoned all she has,
Abandoned what she was;


The sad cruel fate,
It’s his prince who opened the gate;
Her freedom traded with his life,
Her new life from his blood in the knife;


An unknown agreement,
To free her from torment;
The princess live what she intend,
While the prince died in the end;


A fairy tale that is awfully twisted,
To his reality that existed;
A happiness that comes with price,
A true love that was hidden in goodbyes.

This was so, so great! I loved this. The story, the rhyming, the wording, the length, everything felt so perfect! It felt like it should be in some actual storybook... just a twisted one. This is magnificent, and I really hope you keep writing because your words were so magical and grand.
