…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.

You are welcome.
What a great write!
Soooo true, isn't it? No one warns us that life is merciless...there is no rhyme or reason...we cannot trust happiness when we find it, and we cannot escape pain when it comes our way. You're right...there are no 'Happily Ever Afters'...but maybe the wild ride is its own reward.

Interesting! point! Thanks for the great review :)!
So many nice lines in this poem! Beautifully written. I think we all have a fairy-tale ending. It just takes time to find "the one".

Thank you for the review :)!
I am assuming this is about the fact that live is made to look so full of glory and happiness but life is only what you make it you choose how to deal with what life has dealt to you not many are able to do this well. I for one am not very good at making a bad thing a good thing but I still try that is what you have to remember is always try. The old saying trust no one holds a little truth but you trust no one till you know that the person could never betray you to the point that you won't trust again. You must trust some but you pick who to trust wisely. Life is not always pleasant but that's what makes the pleasant moments so much more pleasant. Yours truely a mad lord

Not always true. I mean, how many people do you trust to read your work and not deem you unsuitable to know in person? How many people do you trust on a daily basis to grant you time and money, space and love?? I'd say you trust, I just think that you're worried you'll be hurt (again??)

'Putting my trust in you was a sin' - nice line. It wouldn't say its a sin but more of a mistake. It's a sin on the other persons behalf to betray and lure the other person in on false promise and pretend feelings.

A good strong poem which I can relate to from a time of yesteryear, bu those times are gone and luckily for me I have found my fairy tale ending.

Nice read, but I feel the hurt in it too.

Mak.
