Fairy Tale Rescuers:

People keep wanting me to post
so I worked over a reply I did
for another Blog. Have fun reading.

Fairy Tale Rescuers:

I wanted one that swings a sword
sharpened on both sides
That would cut the ones in half
that I wish to die
A Knight or Maiden
I really cared not which
As long as they would kill
the evil one called a witch

No, not one to me
was a shining Knight
No one tried to save me
or brought me out into the light
For in my time the kids was wrong
and Mom or Dad was right
So in the darkness of my mine
I hide from them in fright

Read not I
no not, book one
No fairy tales for me
for I was too dumb
What’s wrong with that kid
my sweet mom has said
I’d never read them a book
I’d rather be caught dead

I’ll not go to see them
for in the ground they stay
And the ghost within my mind
now dance upon their grave
I hope you had some fun
when you read this reply
And if you think it's true
please I ask you not to cry

Lost words:

What I write is from the past
Thoughts and words from long ago
As if time had open a door
To let sweet words run free
Yet now this heart from a harden soul
Speaks no verse or rhyme
No pen writes of a muse’s song
No keyboard beats out a tune
Now only tear upon dry cheeks
For it seems my words have gone
Only hope and dreams now live
And even they’ll not last long

Just today the cool evening air
took me back to days long passed.
Memories raced through my head
so fast I knew it would not last.
I traveled back to run and play
along that slow moving brook.
Remembering the snack I used to take
to eat as I read my comic book.
I wish I could take you back with me,
tho I know you could not come along.
To just hang out and play together as the
clouds and sun just seem to linger on.
I tried to leave this world behind
hoping to live deep within my mind.
You found me off so far away
and brought me back again today.
You touched my dream and I saw you cry
as you looked deep into my eyes.
You saw there was but one place for me,
and it was not in this reality.
