Lately, I’ve been thoroughly immersed in the show ‘Once Upon a Time’. Obviously, that’s not all I’ve been up to, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t addicted to it. It’s such an awesome series with a brilliantly complicated and ever expanding plot line. I won’t spoil anything here.

I think this twisted fairytale is refreshing in a world currently obsessed with Disney because the OUAT characters actually have to work for their happily-ever-afters. Their lives aren’t completely straightforward and magic isn’t the answer to all their problems as it always comes with a price, deary…

 

With my mind swarming with fairytales, I started writing some (slightly macabre) poetry inspired by thoughts of unhappy marriages and alternative endings.

This poem ‘Good Knight’ will be the first in my Fairytale series on Our Wolf Song.

Enjoy…

 

Good Knight

(Fairytale Series – Poem No. 1)

I grabbed you by the throat
yet still, you wouldn’t leave
I guess you can forgive
the darkest parts of me

 

I tore at my own flesh
to remove the parts of you
buried deep within
yet still, your love ran through

 

I dug out my glass slippers
and threw them on the ground
they shattered into pieces
you didn’t make a sound

 

I crawled into the lake
to try to drown my pain
but you just dived straight in
and saved my life

again

 

So,
I took your silver blade
and ran it through your chest
can you still be my knight
when you’re six feet under

dead ?

 

Now,
With a red hot flame
upon my tired skin
I burn your every touch
and remove my every sin

  1. I love this poem, it’s so beautifully written! I write poems myself but I was always too scared to share them with anybody, probably because they feel like a personal diary. ;) I absolutely love your new blog design, it is so pretty and the little wolf is so cute!
