A Poem by joanofbooke

                                As I stand on the edge of eternity, the footfalls of destiny stretch before my feet. Until this point I was lost. I knew none and  was invisible to the world unfolding around me.                                                                                                   I was a wanderer, queen of the lost. Although the fairtales must mislead you, for I was not beautiful, I was an ugly creature locked inside of my past unable and unwilling to forgive.                                                                                                                                          But now I was truely beautiful, I had forgiven and moved on. Now everything was a path carved just for me, and though it was simple, to me it was perfect .                                                                                                                    For so long I had nothing but now to have something to call mine, a destiny, a truth, a shred of hope for now I am no longer lost.

I really liked this, though the format was a bit distracting, as were the typos. I would also change how you started the sentence "Although the fairytales must mislead you..."

Overall, a great piece. Lots of emotion wrapped up in those few words.

Nice stylizing, the meaning has a dark fantasy ambience. I really liked it!
