Once Upon a Time

by Samantha Scarito

I dare to live in the day dreams

Of alternate realities and possibilities

The life I thought I signed up for

A future I saw as structurally mine

Nobody prepared me for this existence

In which I tense and crack

Frustration boiling at the surface, muscles so numb

Grasping for what seemed promised

Wondering where the fairy tale ended

And the nightmare began.
