Maleficent – not a fairy tale


Where once was light
now darkness falls
her idyllic life
now jailed in walls

Tainted with hues
of emerald spite
what once a regal
grandiose sight

Her throne, enchanted
is now but ruins
of stones misshapened
by love’s undoing

Tragic love story;
far undiscerned:
She loved too deeply,
and deeply she mourned

Now once an innocent
and blissful soul
emerged hell-bent
with wicked goals

From a hero’s princess
in sparkling haven
She drowned in darkness
and rose a villain.

Hi! I'm Rose. I fancy myself a poet sometimes... But really, I'm just a dreamer- a wonder wanderer. Words are my photo albums.
