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.

Omg I love this! Such vivid descriptions, and this poem has a great flow. Keep up the great writing! :) PS Could you possibly check out my novel "The Art of Letting Go"? I'd appreciate it!

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 ready copy, waiting for you to scribble your name in it. I am your biggest fan! Even what you think is your worst work, is awesome to me. Please, don't ever stop writing, because you will be robbing the world of something spectacular if you do so. I can't wait to read your next piece! Love, Lisha :)
