I can never tell you why I’m broken. Why my lips tremble at your name. Why my eyes widen at your glance. Why my hands feel strangely empty. (If you enjoy these poems, please Like & Comment.)

My Fair Fancy Fairy-tale Girl

Once you whispered long ago
That you were indeed no
Fairy-tale, fairy-tale girl

Now I think it must be said
Although I am strong of spirit,
Unyielding, and hard of head
That even I had been misled

You had not eyes like the sea
Nor skin as smooth as ivory
Nor lips as red as the rose
My fair fancy fairy-tale girl

Yet, on many a moonless night
As hard as it may be to admit
There were times I did wish
You possessed all those things

And I’m sure it has been said
To many a child before bed
That fairy tales are only true
Ever so long as you choose

Now I think that must be so
For, indeed, the more I knew
The less I believed true…of
My fair fancy fairy-tale girl

Now it seems to me that even
Had you been but a bit more
Like I wished winters ago
You’d not have remained so

For fairy tales are only true
So long as you and I choose
My fair fancy fairy-tale girl
