A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong

Post by Eowyn » Thu Feb 13, 2003 6:33 pm

A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong



The moon reflects in her eyes

Inside, her soul slowly dies

She trudges through the green?green grass

Mesmerized by the past.



Laughing and fun were far behind

Now thoughts of death control her mind

Hand to her face, thoughts in her head.

No?make them stop! I couldn?t be dead.



Atop a hill, by certain stone

She stands there crying, not alone.

People surrounding a little brown box

With flowers and wreathes piled on top.



Mom, don?t cry, I?m standing right here.

Daddy, look at you?re eyes, they?re starting to tear.

Pappy, I?m here, right here by your side.

Sissy, look, I?m here, I haven?t died.



Everyone! Stop crying, can?t you see I?m not dead?

You?re all being crazy, it?s all in your head.

I?m standing right here, in front of your face,

You act like I?m invisible, all but erased.



Who is it in there? It looks kind of like me?

But no! It?s impossible, that couldn?t be?me

How did it happen? Why, when and where?

Stop looking at me like that! Like I?m not even there.



Can?t you see, no, this is all just a lie,

This is impossible, I couldn?t just die.

That is not me being lowered into the ground.

God! Please make them stop crying, I can?t stand the sound.



I don?t want to believe it, Damn it! I?m not dead.

But the fairy tale of life, is just in my head.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

...............................we can be

The Night



The darkness of night is absorbed

by a many troubled soul.

It brings to their eyes a vision,

Of a glass that is half empty.



It shows to them others,

Others like themselves.

Who wait all day for darkness;

To be consumed by the night.



To lay awake

In troubled sleep,

To the night there is no end.

Only a beginning

That goes in circles

Again and then again.



Night comes everyday

To greet those who wait,

Wait for sleep,

Wait for life,

Wait to lay awake.



For those tormented by dreams in sleep,

And those who don?t dream at all,

For those who lay awake at night,

Wondering where they went wrong.



It comes for those who need the dark

To sit and sort out life,

Night come to those who are peppy

But show their weary eyes.

Others just find night

As a part of mortal lives.



But mortal lives may come and go

As many as they wish

Yet night is not a part of life

But a part of mother earth.



The night to some, may be a gift

To others it is a curse

But others find it, a time of day

To thank thee. Mother earth.



To thank her for this blessing,

To thank her for this fright,

To thank her for this darkness,

To thank her for this night,

To thank her for her blessings,

She gives us everyday,

To thank her for the darkness, that ends our every day.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

...............................we can be

Tales of Tears





Tears roll down her cheeks

As they have done for weeks

each one a new story told

ones of new and days of old



these tell stories of happy and sad

days of misery, sorrow, hurting bad;

not one good tear will stain her flesh

or save her soul from this mindless mess



For every one of those of happy tales

Is another sad one unrevealed.

From field of bright sweet smelling flowers

Turns to the destruction of her will power.



One of these such tears fell off her chin

It tells a tale of what has been

Those days of darkness in her eyes

The ones, that hid, behind the lies.



This tale is told by her souls eyes

Not being boggled by the lies.

She was at one time, a happy girl

Not being tormented by the cruel world.



Then she let the darkness seep into her mind

It turned her thoughts into dark, oblivious holes in time.

She walked like in a trance

Hoping to give life another chance.



Yet, to her, life was just another song

That would end soon, before too long.

Another thread in a tangled skein

That she would happily leave behind.



Yet her conscious would not let her do this

It knew the parts of life she?d miss.

So all she could do was lie,

And sit in her room and cry.



For many years she hid the truth

In a plan that seemed to be full proof

But now she told

Her future begins to unfold?

This past tale, slowly fades away.



Old, new, happy, sad

Tales there are, good and bad.

Past, present, future, woe!

Only two tales yet to go.



The present is where we live right now

And she sits in her room, wondering how?

How her life got so bad?

Was what she did the only choice she had?



Her teary eyes tell this tale

For it is unique, calm, and frail.

The present is a tricky time

For no one knows what they?ll find.



Yet she?s sitting on her bed

Thoughts are running in her head.

Her parents know, of course they do

She knows these answers all are true.



Yet, she refuses to believe its real

But it seems this is the way to feel.

All is false

Naught is true.



All she does is sit and shake

Decisions are what she hopes to make.

She takes a breath, gave it thought

On if to end her life or not.



She decides that is the foolish way out

That is not what life is really about.

But she is still unsure, afraid

There are still questions made.

This tale faintly proceeds on?



Days of new, days of old

Just a few tales are told

Yet, uncertain thoughts race through her mind

Future answers she wants to find.



Friends are friends, do true ones last?

Where those the ones affecting her in the past?

Is friendship really a 2 lane way?

Should she venture down, come what may?



To give to get to get to learn,

One day life with deal out her turn.

She will venture down this lonely street

Future friends she hopes to meet.



Should she ditch the ones she had?

If all they did was make her sad?

They caused her grief, despair, distress

They are the ones that put her life in this mess.



They call, ignore, care, then despise

Fill her head with useless lies

Yet, to ignore them would be a sin.

But, her new life could soon begin.



She can?t have the answers,

But questions a many

From here, the future looks bare and empty.

Stress keeping her up, dusk to dawn

This tale doesn?t end, but ventures on.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

...............................we can be

wow i really like the first poem ... it really relates of what u r going through right now
<span style=\'font-family:Times\'Something told the wild geese

It was tine to go

Through the fields lay golden

Something wispered- "SNOW"

Leaves were green and stirring

Berries,luster-glossed

But beneath the warm feathers

Something cautioned- "FROST"

All the sagging orchards

Steamed With amber spice

But each wild breast stiffened

At rembered ice

Something told the wild geese

It was time to fly-

Summer sun was on their wings

Winter in their cry

:o Wow. Those were all really good!
ATTENTION: Due to finanical difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off.

"They turn the lights down low,

In shadows hiding from the world,

Only coming out when it gets cold.

The seas part when they hit the floor,

The voices carry on and out the door

And everything you touch turns into gold

Like the angel you are you laugh creating a lightness in my chest,

Your eyes they penetrate me,

(Never cease to amaze me)

That's when I got up and left" Like The Angel - Rise Against

*She's a mystery

My most beautiful regret

I will never understand her

She's a mystery

The only promise I can keep

Even in my dreams she ruins me*



*I've found the one I need.. The only trick will be to get her to show up at my door arms full of lilies and eyes full of love*

Life..Written on blank white pages

*out and open L-girl*

The Last Laugh



He told me that he loved me.

I thought it to be true.

Why did I believe him?

Why did I believe you?



Through all the beatings and abuse,

I stood by your side,

even though I cried and cried.

The day came to speak my mind;

that's when you pulled out the gun.



You shot it twice;

the last thing I heard was

your high-pitched laughter.

Now I'm dead, and you're in jail.

You don't care that your sentence is

DEATH!!

You still laugh about that night,

the night I died, until it's your turn.

Then I'll have my turn to laugh.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

ok...this is about my bff Erin...



An Abrupt End



The knife in her hand draws nearer to her wrist.

With thoughts if death in her mind.

To her, it doesn't matter who's left behind.

If only a few care, it doesn't matter.



Now as the blood drips, I fall to the floor.

Why does it seem like she doesn't care anymore?

Mark and me stand there shaking with fear.

Why does it seem like death is so near?

Although the shaking stops, the fear is still here.

Is death going away, or is it still comming near?



As she falls to the floor, I fear it's to late.

Why did this feeling have to be so strong, the feeling is hate.

Hate towards life, and hate toward herself.

Mark shrank away into the corner like a scared little mouse.

Fairwell my friend, I hope we meet again.



Hopefully in another life it won't come to such an abrupt end.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

last one 4 now...I just wrote it:



The Spirits of the stars above



I sit here with the moon and stars

maping out my every scar

the big and little

the short and long



The spirits of the stars above

wanting to fill me with all their love

and yet I decide close my heart

and block their love from ever part.



My heart has been broken, lost, and scarred

no wonder my life became so hard,

everything I ever touched seemed to die

as I close my eyes I start to cry.



The wind from the trees dry my tears

and let me reflect on all my years,

the years of death, dispair,and many fears.

the years of aggony, wrecks, and thought that seem to dissapear.
Love is you

New poem:



Best Friends?



She calls me her best friend

and yet I wonder why?

For she's sitting at a different table

ignoring us all right now.



We thought that she went home.

Find out later that is a lie

she never told us why she left

or even that she was.



Yet sooner than she expected

I found the truth out.



She says no one talks to her

well thats her own damn fault

She's the one that sits there

quiet as a mouse.

Never saying anything

or joining in the fun.



I don't care anymore

and I could care less right now

If this is her meaning of best friends

then she really IS a dumb blonde.
Love is you

........ You and me

...............Love is knowing

...............................we can be
