The Palace

The Palace

A Poem by Kayla

Take me back
to the candied palace
of wonder and awe;
a place that held no malice.

There I met an Italian prince,
curly locks of the darkest hair
framed his icicle eyes--
hands bare,
incapable of harm.

His father placed 
a string of gems around my neck,
a token of acceptance and understanding.
I'd be back,
and I would join them.

I left their home,
falling from licorice into the sky.
I wasn't scared of falling--
just of goodbye.

I never went back.
I never could,
for my eyes, they opened.

Opps! Poor Prince! Ha!
The poem seemed like an epic n some kinda fairy tale, this poem reminds me a song "Juliet" sung by "Taylor Swift." Nice theme, I hope in reality, the price's never gonna miss the chance to take you on a candle lit date where you find the peace of the life right into the arms of that cool prince. Ha!

Good fairy tale type of poem that turned out to be a dream. Good descriptive imagery was used here that painted me a picture. I don't usually like fairy tale feeling poems but this was well put together and kept my attention until the end.

Dreams are serious killers once you awaken from them. I was captivated by this poem from beginning till end. It flow quite well too. A fine write if I do say so myself :)
