Description: This isn't about anything that's ever happened to me. I'm not a porn freak or anything (I've never partaken of it). It was inspired by Bright Eyes lyric from the song "Waste of Paint": " I am thankful that someone actually receives the prize that was promised by all those fairy tales that drugged us. And they still do me."
Fairy Tale Filth -------------------------------------------
We're all polluted by myths
and the filth of fairy tales.
Pornography is more realistic.
Does love ever happen to people like us,
or is it only for movie stars?
Should I settle for soul-rotting sex
with the first guy I can find?
Pretending all of the time
that he's a shining knight
and pretend he's off to the Crusades
when he gets up and leaves .
Maybe that'll make it easier
when he never returns.
this is good but the ending kind of is ...well cheesey-It's already understood that he is leaving and well I myself already knew he wasnt going to return. It seems to me like you don't really need that line about returning. other than that good work L.t
cool lil poem, i like the last two lines, not sure why there kinda sad but i like them, and theres no such thing as a shining knight they all died a long time ago. but im being depressing so i'll leave now, thanks for sharing Pryncess
WOW! this is incredible! fairy tales and happily ever afters kinda build lil kids up for a fall coz the they're just an ideal and real life aint like that. i LOVE how you end this... imagining he is a knight so its easier to pretend you aint hurt when he dont come back... really insightful write!
Interesting thoughts definately. Do I detect cynicism? Actually, I couldn't agree with you more, and I'm young, so honestly, people younger than me associate fairy tales and happily ever after loves as dreams, not realities. To get to the point, I think this is great.
