Love is a Fairytale

I hear the silent screams of pain you carry deep inside.
A fire quenched by the hatred that still burdens you.
A dried heart hidden within the confines of a fortress
built to protect, but now nothing but a ghostly barrier.
You hide the blackened paintbrush 
used to tarnish all before you as the same, 
but we’re not.
A shattered heart and torn life takes a longtime to heal.
Scars can be carried delicately inside, waiting for that one
proven moment of doubt to rip at the stitches.
re-opening old wounds.
A fragile mind is the hardest to mend.
Self doubts haunt you, horrible memories still burn.
Trust an ugly, bitter word.

Love, is a fairytale.

    Fell the pain and sorrow. I do fell love is a fairytale because it takes a lot to fall in love and someone to fall in love with you

    words of sorrow, hurt and loneliness. Each line brings the reader more and more tears. Nicely done

    Profoundly sad and sincere poetry. I would say "Passion and romance" are the fairy tales. Real love is what we end up with when we weather all the storms and passion is replaced by trust and familiarity. since most are not able to settle for less than passionate love, they often call it quits or move on to someone else. Such a shame.

    sadly we did part although it was her doing. In the end she decided she needed time to get herself back together. We were friends for awhile after but parted as such when she did meet someone.

    I can relate to this completely! I especially can feel the line, "A shattered heart and torn life takes a longtime to heal." I felt like I was reading one of my own poems. This was very deep and sorrowful, and I think I must add it to my favorites! Really great work, Tom!...Thank you once again for your kind comments. They are much appreciated!

    This was about a girl I met and was trying to get close to. She never really did let her guard down much. I enjoy your work Kelly. =)

    thank you for stopping by, this was written about a friend who had come out of a horrible relationship. It took some time for her to lower her guard even slightly and let me into part of her world. I never did get to learn all her secrets or get her to trust completely. Eventually we moved on in our lives.
