Lonely Stars

Don’t pretend you cry for me
You weep for what cannot be
For happy endings don’t exist
Dream princesses never kissed

Dragons fade from mortal eye
Taking all those ‘happy ever after’ lies
The comfort drained from lullabies
When parents gave their last goodbyes

Shallow thoughts once seemed so deep
Forming plans we’ll never keep
Just toys to keep our fears asleep
Lives once precious now sold cheap

All our hopes and dreams will lie
In tatters under the cold dark sky
Where nothing seems to signify
And even lonely stars must die…
