Bag that matches her heels

Low cut top that reveals

Just enough to add class to her style

Make up lightly applied

In the mirror she sighed

As she hadn't been out in a while

Had it all in her hand

Queen of fairytale land

When Prince charming rode in for the kill

Swept straight off both her feet

Lands amongst the elite

Seeking even a momentary thrill

Oasis free of charge

Or a costly mirage

Shiny trinkets and baubles stone cold

In a flash he was gone

From the Ritz to the pawn

Looked upon as the crease in the fold

One message heaven sent

From the one who was meant

To share every emotion and tear

If it isn't to.late

Readjust twists of fate

When the heart See's it all becomes clear

                  This is a cleverly woven tale of there being so much more to life than materialistic things. Love the splash of hope at the end; if we change our greedy ways, we might find the right path.
                  Very clever piece indeed.
                  Happy to read your words again :)
