Fairytale ending

I let it weigh me down long enough
That it’s suffering may cure my denial
The truth they say is clearer in pain
Clearly my mirage has given way to desert sand
But the scars left by false hope birth a beast of a domesticated heart
No cage will hold this one captive I fear
Deep in the heart of night hear it howl
In rage, regret and new insight
He will forever stalk the woods
For little girls in red hoods and baskets full of goodies
Until beauty finds him
And rids him of this grave curse
Someone should have warned him to be weary of rabbit holes
Indeed what a great fall
All hope now lay in the hands of the king’s horses and men
Jack fell down and broke his heart but Jill only came tumbling after

    Powerful words and use of imagery, nice use of various metaphors to bring the message to light
