A nightmarish hell of a fairy tale
where dragons rule and knights fail,
where villians live and princesses die,
where wolves wander free with pork pie.
Words fly on pages, turning skies red,
The Queen thrives while Snow White dead,
Tears turn scarlet into droplets of blood,
Rapunzel’s long hair lost in the flood.
Without care and attention, the stories erode
and damage is caused when legends implode.
I open my eyes and all disappears,
but faintly remains those little fears,
I can’t draw a picture or explain why
these dreams appear at night when I lie.
