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.

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…
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’.
