If she could,
she’d run off into the fields
to a place where no one would find her

She’d make sure to start afresh
leave all her pains behind
heal her wounds

Of broken promises
too many unbearable disappointments
her heart broken too many times

It could no longer bear the pain
too many shed tears

Been in denial for far too long
Thinking it would all take a better turn
But life was not the fairytale in the books she read
