"A Dark Faery Tale" (a collection of poems)
Amidst a darkened night,
lay a horrid sight.
Inside a pumpkin, fresh,
she made her home, a nest.
Adandoned by her family.
An orphan to society.
A regular, Raggedy Ann, named Bella,
whom, we like to call Cinderella.
She wears a torn, blue dress.
Her body is made of straw,
with stitches tearing apart,
as the crows pick and claw.
She once was beautiful, I must say.
A prince would have married any day.
But she never got a chance.
Cinderella missed that dance,
as her faery godmother was a trickster.
Now only a rat will kiss her.
Her glass slippers full of cracks,
as broken as her smile is chapped.
She missed the deadline as the clock struck ten.
She thought she had 'til 12 to get back in,
but the doors were closed of the house she once called home.
Her eyes turned to buttons all on their own.
Cinderella had to pay the toll,
so the faery took her soul.
She then became a doll, a faery too it seems,
to wreak havoc on us humans, and to decieve our dreams.
