Fairy Tales

I've always been attracted  to the other world.
You know,  the world in between life and death.
The one you always see out of the corner of your eye.
Was always that little girl who wanted to be someplace. 

Someplace more exciting then the place I was standing. 
I always knew there was something more exciting waiting.
More exciting then where I was standing, new adventures. 
Where the stardust falls at mid-night, with sunrise delight. 

World of whispers and flickering shadows in moonlight. 
Where the fairies and frogs and fireflies dance all night . 
I call it my consensual reality in my alternate universe .  
Come, take my hand, the land of enchantment is waiting. 

It was always ok that I was the only one that believed.   
Believed in the unseen world of the magical light beings. 
I see the gargoyles conversing with the pigeons high up.
Sometimes they wink at me as they turn back to stone. 

They pretend that way, so no one will catch on to them.
Trouble with magick is most people don't believe in it. 
Though I'm sure they could if they kept hold of dreams.
And child like natures and the innocents of childhood.
They don't believe in what's buried deep down inside. 
If you tried, I know you could see just what I see. 
Fairies with rainbow colored wings, fly against the sun.
Or dancing along the milky way in the pale moonlight.   

And the shoemakers magick shop is where they live.  
They are always delighted when you come for a visit.

I wrote this as I was waiting for my daughter Jessie to come home from bowling.

    Thank you for your comment Debbie,~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    hey, did you check out that contest for fairy poems? he may have changed his rules and allowed it to be about anything to do with fairies! I bet this would be a good entry.

    That was a very beautiful piece of poetry. I have always lived between two worlds, mostly that got me the reputation for being weird, in good old practical Oz. I think life is magic, when looked at without the thoughts it is very beautiful indeed. I really like what you write, thank you

    "Someplace more exciting than the place I was standing" << really love that line there! That's what I think is so great about imagination... if you have a strong enough one you can create whatever world you wish to live in. You have the power to see yourself in some magical land even when in reality you're in some mundane place like an office building. Awesome work!

    Keep your inner child alive and well with all it's imaginings. We would all be much healthier mentally and physically if we just remember how to play. Huggs Tlee

    Debbie! I am shocked that I passed by this one. This is so awesome!! Seriously, such a joy to read. I believe in magic. :) And fairy tales most certainly aren't just for children! Very cute poem!

    This is exactly what I think fairyland looks like....I love to believe, it makes me happy!

    Debbie; I too always wonder about that other world that we can't see. I believe in the spirits of our loved ones that have passed on. I believe that they are in another demention and that sometimes they come back and help us. Do you think that Fairy Tales are just for Kids. I don't, Thanks for sharing.....Lucilla

    We hesitate to take a look at what's just over there. We caught a glimpse of what we think, but simply just don't dare. Alice fell into the screen and found a paridise. Where shoemakers live, fairies dance and mad hatters give advice. So Jessie's home, and you no longer roam. Where dreamers spend their days. But we'll be glad to take the trip with you on your next stay. Enjoyed the fanciful journey Debbie. Have a fairy tale day. :)
