Faery Tale
It's Only A Faery Tale World

Yesterday, I read about the boy with the scar
And his glasses,
How they shone under the dull lamplight of his cuboard
That fits perfectly under the stairs
Like a faery tale.
As he reads the stories of long, long ago
He wishes that he were out there,
Fighting against the dragons
Alongside the knights of old,
With Merlin and the other great lions,
Such as Rumbleroar.

But what about those other years,
The later ones
Where he does fight along side
The brave knights of yester-year.
Those battles in years to come;
Where family dies,
Leaving loved ones as they head on,
Drifting beyond the veil
To a more magical Narnia.

Is it such a faery tale than,
The one he dreamed it to be?
He's grown from that skinny stick form
To a young adult,
So no time for make believe.
Now, it's reality
Everything means death
The world isn't beneath the pages anymore
Like some often wish it to be yet again.
It's under the hand
That holds the wood,
In a flick of a wand,
A single movement of the wrist,
Barely noticeble
To a gasp of pain
The hiss of a snake,
That looses it's venom among it's own blood.

Blood.
Pools of it mingle,
Drifting among the feet of others;
Mixing with the tears of others;
Lifting with the spirits of others;
Rising above the tear strung and cloudy skies
And up to the heavens

Blood.
It's not so much of a faery tale now, is it boy?
Not when there is blood.
Not when there's death.
Not when you don't know what flat-nosed object
Is waiting for you
Just around the corner to kill you.

But to us,
It's only a faery tale world
Made up
Just for us to enjoy.
OK, fine. I'll admit it. I WAS thinking of Harry Potter when I wrote this. :D And AVPM and The Chronicles of Narnia for various reasons that I won't bore you with. Some of you may have figured out why already.

So yeah. Here you go. Something that I wrote !

I guess it is true that those fairy tales all seem so fanciful and sparkly, yet when you get right down to it, they're bloody and horrible! (Especially the brothers Grimm original versions.) I guess we imagine them so great because the people in the stories don't have the problems that we've come to associate with hardship (jobs, money, etc.), and the grass is always greener...

Did this is amazing!

"What the HELL is a Hufflepuff?!"

p.s. The other day Phoebe and I made a reference from AVPM in history... I feel like we were talking about Andrew Jackson and our teacher mentioned something about him finding something and Phoebe looks at me from across the room and mouthed "He's a HUFFLEPUFF!!!"

Haha, thanks.
Is it because Jackson is a very good finder ? :giggle:
