Glass slippers

Glass Slippers

glass-slipper

Its midnight

not the night of celebration.

Take the stairs and

runaway

because those are the sounds of cruel.

Healing deception of poison ivy.

You’re the knight

and you’re the prince.

Die like a warrior

and live for the war.

Don’t look for glass slippers

as they are crushed

at the gates of realm.
