Distorted Fairy Tale

by Rolo   Jul 1, 2005

Once upon a time, I knew of this face
Oh so long ago, it did not disgrace
It viewed the world without a care
It held happiness for all to share

Before long, twas the villain who entered
For a terrifying evil he had ventured
This evil remains unknown to us still
As an act committed against our will

'Tis the Angel who wouldst soon pay
For her faith in man wouldst not sway
She had no fears of which to abide
She had no decisions of which to decide

And so the villain learned of her ways
Studied her movements for many days
Devised a plan, and set out for the kill
For him 'twas nothing more than a thrill

Awaiting a day as dark and as gloom
As the thought of this angel's doom
The rain was pouring, the thunder loud
'Twas finally time, he felt so proud

Came the Angel with all her beauty
Went the villain to fulfill his duty
Grabbed by force, he took her away
He was so anxious to begin his play

Swing after swing, her beauty faded
After the struggle, immensely jaded
Took her soul and filled it with pain
Time continued along with the rain

Raped and beaten the fallen angel lay
The villain laughing with nothing to say
His plan fulfilled, he had such fun
Ruining a life so far from done

Time moved forward, the angel fell back
To only the night of the brutal attack
Broken and empty she always remained
Wondering what the villain had gained

The end of this story, came half way through
The angel did what she needed to do
Taken was the dagger, straight to her heart
From this fairy tale, she did depart

Happily ever after, exists but in our dreams
This is a tale of not what it seems
The evil prevailed, the angel is gone
From this story, the good is withdrawn

The End.

    You really have a way with words and a real craft in telling a story in great rhyme. Back in 2005 I am just struggling to write a poem...but you had it in you already. A great talent indeed.

    I really like this poem! Great rhymes and rhythm. I love the last two stanzas. The angel leaves the fairytale yet it does move on to the last stanza. It's great how it seems to suggest that life went on after she died. The villain lives while she's long gone and it's very eye-opening. Amazing! I love your work so much!

    Great poem, it is one of my favourites that i have seen on here and it all flows so well. There was only one thing i did not like too much about it and that was the last four lines. I'm not sure why i just think that it would be better if it ended with the second to last paragraph. Other than that i think it is perfect.
