When I left the front door open that morning,
I waited for the birds to fly in.
I imagined I was
Snow White and
The Seven Dwarves were still asleep upstairs.
I could almost hear Sleepy snoring through his
Tomato-red nose while
Grumpy suppressed curses beneath his dreams.
When I left the front door open that morning,
I waited all day for their wings,
But I never once caught a glimpse of
White feathers.
My crown stood tall,
The mirror spoke,
But I did not feel as if I were
The fairest.
When I left the front door open that morning,
I waited for you to step through the frame.
The birds refused to perch on my shoulders,
But I thought you’d be here
Rescue me.
I left the front door open today
And waited for the witch to offer me an apple.
I imagined that I’d
Take a bite and
Slip to the ground and
I’d no longer have to wait
For the birds to join me.

Hey Hannah Banana! I know you get a lot of people who comment on your poems and short stories on here, and I know that this probably doesn't mean much, but this poem was amazing! I loved how you incorporated a classic fairy tale into a relatable poem. Your descriptions were on point and I could feel the mood and the tone of the poem (XD). You truly do have a talent, Hannah. And the moment that you finally get realized and published for your work, I will be the first one at your doorstep, with a ... (more »)
