Poetry Friday: When This Story Ends by Jeremy Rubolino from The Little Mermaid

It's so enchanting
I'm trapped and drowning
Here for everyone to see
They don't notice
How far away I am
from everyone and everything

Silly to have gambled with my heart out on the line
I guess that's just the way it goes
But I'm holding on
I know a day will come when I can be myself again
And I hope someone will love me
When this story ends

'round in circles
Pointless wandering
And the crowd lines up again
"Give a smile, girl!"
"You make them happy"
"Bring your parents, bring a friend"

Silly that a main attraction would long so much for love
I guess that's just the way it goes
But I'm holding on
I know a day will come when I can be myself again
And I hope someone will love me
When this story ends

If someone could
Someone right for me
Finds a way to take me home again
I believe it
One day, I'll be home

Still I'm searching
'round in circles
While the crowd lines up again

- lyrics to When This Story Ends, composed by Jeremy Rubolino, performed by Poppy Drayton in the film The Little Mermaid (2018 live-action film)

Listen to the song.
