Never a Fairytale

Never a Fairytale

A Poem by Azure Montessa (Blue)
"

A typical tale of unhappy ending.

"
He had the eloquence of a poet,
the valor of a knight,
the wisdom of a sage,
and the fortune of a king.
His seeming perfection was a tell-tale,
but I was too crazed to care.

Hi speeches were clever cliches,
his embrace, an enchanted prison,
his love was a lie of lust,
and his kiss, an unforgivable offense.
For when I was still his,
he was never really mine at all.
I was nothing but a fleeting interest;
a remedy for his boredom.

The story has turned sickening sweet,
and passion revealed itself to be a pretense.
He walked away,
head held high in apparent victory,
for he had crushed another dreamer's heart.
And off he went for another thrill,
in search of another damsel.
He left me in my  own tower of torment,
writing this pathetic poem,
about him who loved and left.

Our story was my scar,
a typical tale of unhappy ending,
penned in the advent of a heartache,
in the twilight of my dreams.

He was never a prince...
Just another frog in disguise.
And ours was never a fairytale...

He had the eloquence of a poet,

the wisdom of a sage,
and the fortune of a king.
His seeming perfection was a tell-tale,
but I was too crazed to care.

in this i like how you tell how she had fallen for him and what the things she had fallen for him for.i also i like how in this first lines that it shows that it is has somehting to do with love and that it first makes me guess if it will be a happy ending,betrayal, or a tragedy like romeo and juleit.

Hi speeches were clever cliches,
his embrace, an enchanted prison,
his love was a lie of lust,
and his kiss, an unforgivable offense.
For when I was still his,
he was never really mine at all.
I was nothing but a fleeting interest;
a remedy for his boredom.

this part i love how you use good diction to show how he was jsut using her for his own amusement and that he was like a prison to her.

the girl turns bitter now realizing that all this time he used her and toyed with her heart only to leave her in a tower thinking her as only a damsel in distress that has lost his interest as he continues his game on another.

Our story was my scar,
a typical tale of unhappy ending,
penned in the advent of a heartache,
in the twilight of my dreams.

He was never a prince...
Just another frog in disguise.
And ours was never a fairytale...

i like how you use diction to show that underneath he is just scum and that their relation ship was never a happily ever after like most peoples

You should be very proud of this poem. It's a bittersweet poem, infused with an inner beauty that speaks of a strength that he could never destroy.

Glad you think so. :)
his embrace, an enchanted prison,
his love was a lie of lust,
.

He was never a prince...
Just another frog in disguise.
And ours was never a fairytale...

a sad write of betrayal in love, wish there was harshest punishment for breaking the heart as this is the cruelest blow.

God Bless You
best wishes

what an incredibly eloquent and deeply painful write it was dear....i seriously could not take off my eyes even from a single word of this poem, every word here, as if was trying to tell this story of losss....
generally, its very hard to describe pain, but you indeed defined it very well..and i commend you for that:)

i loved the entire piece,but i think these words were the heart of the poem:

"He had the eloquence of a poet,
the valor of a knight,
the wisdom of a sage,
and the fortune of a king.
His seeming perfection was a tell-tale,
but I was too crazed to care.

Hi speeches were clever cliches,
his embrace, an enchanted prison,
his love was a lie of lust,
and his kiss, an unforgivable offense.
For when I was still his,
he was never really mine at all.
I was nothing but a fleeting interest;
a remedy for his boredom."

and also these:

"He left me in my own tower of torment,
writing this pathetic poem,
about him who loved and left."

He was never a prince...
Just another frog in disguise.
And ours was never a fairytale...

very well done friend:)
