Once Upon A Time The Story Goes
M Q Walters

Once upon a time, the story goes,
Happily ever after is how it ends.
But that seems only true in make believe.
But that is not where I live.

You live here also I suppose,
Where dark and cold howl the winds.
Where lovers deceive,
And only pretend they have something to give.

Once upon a time the story goes,
It always begins and ends the same.
Where fair maidens await,
The sweet kiss of their saving knight.

My fairy tale ends only with woes,
I know I have only myself to blame.
If my knight once came, it was to late,
I await forever in this darkest of night.

"not exactly a bedtime story, so dark but painfully well told." -- curious.
"Loved it :) deep and dark with an original style...how can you go wrong :):)" -- Rebecca.
"Thank you Rebecca and Curious:)" -- mattie.
"Hey Mattie,maybe if you didn't wait in the dark and you waited in the light of day your knight in shining armor would see what a beautiful person you are and carry you away on his white horse.Just trying to shed some light on a sad poem. But I still liked it anyway.Keep smiling.:)" -- David D.
"Hmmm...am wondering why you might think I wait in the dark? I prefer the light...even then you sometimes cannot see. Elaborate please? :)" -- mattie.
"Dear Mattie,I was refering to the last line in this poem.But the truth is I hope wherever you're waiting your knight in shining armor finds you and carries you off to a magical land where you'll live happily ever after! :)" -- David D.
"David...thank you for explaining and I see. I think the last line is more of a metaphor. Love seems to be ellusive...thus in the darkness...if that makes sense. :) " -- mattie.
