"The one who stood watching."
we've all heard fairytales,
and the princes and princesses
escape to their world of surreal routine,
but they never tell about the princess's previous butler:
the one who listened to everything the
princess had to say about the man in shining armor.
the one that was left alone
to watch the horizon become a door
that would soon be locked "ever after."
the one that still was living in reality.
left to live on, alone.
but I guess, long awaited love doesn't leave time for goodbyes.
no time for goodbyes.
