little dove

Olivia the little fairy

Olivia sat on a branch , on a branch that was breakable

A orchard tree she wished for every day and every night

Leaves surrounded her fairy body like stardust

She would soar over ripples of water under the magic sun

Her wings sparkled like a beautiful diamond in a mad world

Under a dark mask she sometimes froze never revealing her bruises

Her hands craved to touch those feminine silver necklaces

But her mind would not let her dance in the magic ballroom

Every morning she notices a pink mermaid in the ocean so far away

And every time she sees the pretty fish creature she cries

For how can jealousy attack her soul just like a burning fire

She looks at her palm turns her hands to a mirror and asks where is my inner mermaid

And why can't I sparkle and fly on a pink orchard tree

Instead of balancing on a invisible branch as breakable as glass

    Thanks DOVE for a beautiful FANTASY POEM that lifts us out of the MUNDANE on a sultry Saturday Night in England ! However it reflects Human Life ! We look at Fairies & Elves and other mythical creatures and think they have an idyllic Life ~ but as you point even Fairies want to be Mermaids. My MANTRA is to be contented what ever State I'm in (I usually want be in Texas !) because Godliness with Contentment is great gain ! Please check my POEM today its about PRINCE CHARLES a Man who has never had a JOB (He's 70) because He's waiting to be KING ~ but HIS MUM who's 94 is Queen and there isn't a vacancy til she's called Home to Glory ~ So He's just a KING in ASPIC ~ Yours BRIAN

      thankyou very much for reading my poem and your lovely comment.
      i do agree it does reflect human life i think
      I wasnt really sure where I was going with this poem but I feel that I did end up somehow unintentionally putting some of my pain and feelings into this poem in a indirect way
      yes I will check out your poem, thankyou
