NaPoWriMo #21

No Time for Princesses

I'm standing there and the world
just passes by on both sides of me:
I'm not sure what I'm waiting for.

Sometimes it all crashes,
falling down on me, and it's cold

like the teardrops of snow raining down
on me now. The tracks of cars cross on the white road
and a girl

dressed like a princess
stumbles across the hidden crosswalk.

The title made me think of that one Taylor Swift song, oh, what's it called... "White Horse". Not sure why. But I did like this. :)
