Once Upon a Time

There was a time
when we knew to forget;
grasping winds in open palms,
holding onto lost memories.
Our smiles
always brighter than the sun,
our laughter
echoing in the wind.
Our path was hidden,
and we lit the dark,
fighting off dragons with
cardboard swords.
We were princesses and fairies,
and famous for a day,
no stopping us.
Living while we could,
invincible all the same.
We dared to dream,
to believe in possibilities.

memories sway like wind in ones mind bringing the brighter smile & laughter and to live in a dream....let the princess & fairy not be famous for just a day,but for a lifetime holding memories that are never lost...good one.

Hmm wait...is this one of those moments when I write something similar to a famous poem because my subconscious supplies it? Yikes! I hope not! Please tell me if it is, everyone...thanks =)

heyy darlingg! i love some of the imagery and phrases... but i think maybe you'll want to expand on some parts and just clarify it a little more. i almost feel like i dont understand the poem... when it really is that you have beautiful ideas, that need to be put in the right context <3

Bela said...

Yay that's exactly the direction I needed! Thanks, Maddie!

I don't think you subconsciously plagiarized anything, but I could be wrong. I have been guilty of that myself on occasion.

Plus: I posted my Tobias Fulner story last night on both the old and new CWP blogs. I wrote it in like 10 min, so it's really stream-of-consciousness. Tell me what you think! And post yours soon :)

You've been inducted into a field hockey gang? Oh no, we're going to lose you to violence forever!
