I’m a poet…and I secretly knew it

I usually don’t advertise that I dabble in poetry along side my novel writings, but turns out that once is a blue moon, I feel the need, the need to write tiny emotional stories through poems, and then completely baffle myself at my achievement.

I’ve been recently thinking about releasing a small collection of my poems – they have been written, and it’d be cruel to keep them locked away in my trinket box like a possessive loony. And rifling through my tiny collection, I’ve come across one of my favourites that I’d like to share with you today. It’s called ‘Fairy-tale Fantasy’, and this is its debut. To read some of my other musings, please visit http://www.writing.com/main/portfolio/view/each

With ‘Fairy-tale Fantasy’ I set my self a challenge to use sayings or clichés in a piece about romantic love stories. I find it amusing to say the least.

Without further ado, I present to you…

Fairy-tale Fantasy

A sea of distance swims between

a farewell yell carries this wind

like Shakespeare in love, my heart sings,

parting is such sweet sorrow’.

A glance across the air

bouncing from here to there

‘a sight for soar eyes’

they land on thee.

‘Love is blind’ I’ve heard,

realizing this fall

painting picture of fantasy

when ‘mission impossible’ is clear.

I dare to dance with thunder; it’s a blunder

music pitter-patters with the falling rain

my soul seeks shelter

when ‘lightening strikes’ near.

Without sparks burns a fire

desire creeps ever so closer

I fear ‘twelve o’clock’ knock

and my wish shall disappear into cinder.

A moonless night, a lonely pride

I stand on the balcony alone,

Romeo is nowhere in sight

a wilting rose, a reminder

it’s only a ‘Mid summer nights dream’.

  1. Yes there is. It’s all about a one-sided love. I guess reading the piece with that in mind will show you that it is a story about unrequited love. Story from one side and not the other. It was an amusing challenge. 🙂


  2. “I’ve been recently thinking about releasing a small collection of my poems ” .> I did a poem on fairytale too but I used Disney as a guide.


    1. I don’t really know proper forms of poetry so I used to experiment with styles a lot.
      And yes, I’m thinking I will release a collection on 25 :). Kind of excited.
