…ONCE UPON A TIME…

…ONCE UPON A TIME…

A Poem by zaisham9393


…ONCE UPON A TIME…








I trusted every word you said

Just like a meaningless song stuck in my head

The stories you read to me

Not even one turned out to be true

I was never scared

I just wish I was prepared

What a pity 

You can’t trust me

I can’t let you win

Putting my trust in you was a sin

Even roses hurt

I feel betrayed by you

I bet you feel the same too

Dear life…

You should have warned me

Before I stepped in…

That there is no such thing as…

A fairy-tale ending!

Nicely put. Simple yet strong.
I look at it as a person wanting to do well in life but then life turns into a fairy tail "full of twists and turns". That life is not going the way the person wished that it would have gone. How they had a path, a life, a set of goals, but life had other plans for them. They felt cheated.
That my take on it... how'd I do? 100/100 from me.

None is trust worthy my friend, everyone behaves according to their need and mood...but if you are on your own, nothing can touch you...
Well coming to your poem, I enjoyed it..:)

There's no one trustworthy here. Everyone changes...it's always better to keep your secrets to yourself, not trusting anyone. Others' actions are not your hands. I can relate to this poem. I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing!

I just wish I was prepared

Wow - now that is powerful stuff right there. Isn't that the truth! I enjoyed this entire poem. I have lately found much inspiration in the debunking of fairy tales. This spoke to me.

Ooooh, nice one.
Is it real?
Did it happen to you?
Did you make it up?
Either way, nice piece of art.

Both!
Thank you for the review :)!
Beautifully and aptly worded. Although I must say it reminded me of a relationship long ago that suddenly ended. When one reads such a poem, it's as if someone out there understands.

Thank you so much Jennie :)!
There indeed is no fairy tale ending in real life which is why we yearn to see exactly that in movies and novels...

"Even roses hurt"
This line really hit me.. Nicely penned 👍
