A Wicked Tale

A dream world, a fairy tale mold
 Knights in shiny armor, bravery and honor 
 A handsome prince, an ugly toad 
 Winding down fantasy road 
 Lace and satin, silver and gold 
 Lies upon lies, never told 
 Crying in the night, hiding in the light 
 Trying to escape the hellish fright 
 Living a nightmare, the lonely stare 
 Looking in the mirror, but nothing’s there 
 Seeking for reasons, finding all fault 
 Crying tears, tasting the salt
 A white picket fence, an all-knowing sense 
 Living a life of false pretense 
 Dried up grass, tarnished brass 
 Running, but you will not pass 
 All the questions, time-consuming deceptions 
 Never attending ballroom receptions 
 A razor blade, a jet black spade 
 Sleeping in the bed you made 
 When will it end? Will I ever mend? 
 Must I continue my lying trend?

    Beautifully written.

    Are you alright?

    1. Jo, thank you.

      Yes, I'm fine. I wrote this poem YEARS ago...way before I began my journey of self-healing. Kinda scary now when I read it!

      But thank you SO much for caring enough to ask!

    I must chime in with Jo and say BEAUTIFULLY written, Pamela!

    (((( You )))))


    1. Ron, thank you. And for the hugs.

      I have a lot of poems that I wrote when I was feeling "down". Strange, I can't seem to write poems when I'm feeling "good".
