Cinderella haven’t you danced enough?
He’s gone and left
and your glass slippers are cracking
this dress is turning into
dusty rags.

Did you expect him to stay?
There are so many belles at the ball
and you are a broken wind up doll
people crank your handle
and you smile a little more.

You held onto your hope
but it’s not enough anymore.
So go back to your darkest retreat
and hold onto the memories
before the clock struck 12.

Smile when he moves on
congratulate the happy couple.
Then go back to your chores
with blistered feet.

Let them crank your feelings
you’ve resisted long enough.
Let them hurt you
there’s nothing left.
You disappeared
with every clock strike.
