Confessions of Cinderella

Cinderella runs away fast
Knowing the magic shall not last
It is hard for dreams to prevail
For this is all but fairy-tale

The clock bangs announcing midnight
Time to bid farewells to her knight
Sadly she weeps, to no avail
For this is all but fairy-tale

Carrying out usual chores
She futilely hopes that he shows
But prince charming loses the trail
For this is all but fairy-tale
