Maybe I'm too caught up in fantasy,
in fairytales and dreams
and maybe I need to wake up
and realize
life isn't always a storybook;
it doesn't play out with a happy ending.
In fables, the characters "live happily ever after,"
but in real life, the end is
death
and that's all it can be.
All good things
must come to an end -
even fables die.
Fairytales end -
they become popular, and a couple years later
no one buys them anymore.
New stories are sold
new fantasies are lived, and read
and then one day, they aren't read anymore.
They remain in the storage rooms of bookshops,
in the back cabinets of libraries,
clothed in sweaters of dust
as the pages turn brown
and the characters live their immortal lives
forgotten.
