From The Beginning To The Kiss

From The Beginning To The Kiss

A Poem by Cyprian Van Dyke
"

A high school dance is being held in Cinderella's castle, Disney World.

"
There're so many words she could say,
But the birds in her mouth just wouldn't let them play.

She's living for tonight, her big high school dance. 
But she's thinking about wearing a mask ... because of this man!

She frets in front of her mirror, because 
She doesn't want to know the potential of her appearance.

Her invitation is a ticket, 
She even got jet lagged when reading it...  

"The dance will be at Disney world... in Cinderella's castle."      
The invitation got dropped from her hands and left at the table. 

The rest of the evening, 
Was just like its beginning,
But tonight there may be a special ending,

The sunset's in front of the entrance. 
She walks in and sees a school by twos dancing.   

She's dressed in peach in a dress so fluffy, 
People look at her and think of a wedding.

She takes a deep breath and starts walking.
From the brilliance of the sunset to her shoes sparkling, 
The whole school sees her   body  smiling.

Hours have passed, shown by the surrounding hourglasses, 
In front of the entrance, students see the moon patently rising.
Then a certain man's presence brings more time to this dance! 
He's more than a student, he's more like a Prince!

He slithers through the people, one hello after another, looking for her...
But she slides her mask over her face and acts like she's invisible,     
She keeps an eye on the entrance awaiting her beau. 

The time the prince brought to the dance, 
Was rain to the drought of her hopeless romance.

But then a beastly man walks in.  
His attire glistens in front of the moon at the entrance. 
She sees him and smiles in her hope of deliverance. 
She didn't know if he would show on such a short notice. 
She runs to him and brings him close to her with warmth. 
Her arms are like a necklace wrapped around his neck, 
wrapped around his arms he feels her every breath. 

Between the moon and the school, they kiss,
Between heaven and earth, there's bliss!

Author's Note

Cyprian Van Dyke
I was thinking of Beauty and The Beast when writing this, and I mixed it with a little Cinderella. I just showed that she was after the Beast rather than the Prince at the end. I never saw either film's, but I think I could relate to the beast judging by the basics.

What made reading this poem worthwhile for you??

I love that she didn't want a dashing prince at all.
He comes in looking for her she trys to hide from him, as she is looking for her prince, and that guy is just not it.
As a prince is more then just good looks. She has truly fallen for a guy who is a prince on the inside, and he is who she wants.

Again extremely beautiful and so so so romantic. This has such a deep and strong meaning, and it definetly has a beauty and the beast kinda story to it as well as Cinderella. I love it.
This was an awesome poem.
Keep on writing :)

Many great lines in this. 'She doesn't want to know the potential of her appearance' stands out to me. You can feel the anticipation building in this. Great descriptive imagery.

Cyprian Van Dyke,on!
You had a wonderful time here just running with the creative spin on this Cinderella Story! It was just a blast to read and very different then the traditional ones. The part that intrigued me was the use of the mask to bring about the result she desires. We know who this princess has her eye on! Glad you shared as it was very refreshing............ Blessings to you. Kathy

The title itself called me for the read...
A pleasant way to write such a beautiful one, the sunset and evening described here is nice : )
It's more like a play, as I could visualise each bit of it... A very good way of telling stories... oh! there's a story in the poem, my types...!!! beautifully done...Especially the ending lines are sweet... good work!!
