Fairy Tale

Tell me a story
Where dragons rule the world
Sing me a song
Of a giant so tall
Just let me know that there’s something more
Than just ribbons and bows

Tell me a tale
Where pixies fly
Through the sky
On clouds in the moonlit night
Just tell me of a place that’s so much more than life
More than life

Maybe one day someone will say
Let me take you away
And we’ll go off to such a place
Where tears don’t exist anymore
Anyway.

Sing me a tune
Where the world’s not so pale,
Paint me a picture
That has a beautiful sunset
Of a time not so frail

Maybe one day someone will say
Let me take you away
There’s no one to chase
Don’t cry anymore
Anyway.

Reality and myth,
I’m listening to this melody
Hoping somebody will find me
Changing the shades
Are there no grays?

Maybe one day someone will say
The worlds not so dark
And you’re not so frail
So, come out from your shell
I won’t let you fall anymore
Anyway.

Great title, I clicked this because it caught my attention! The third stanza was really sweet and special, I liked the fourth line so much! I'm glad that even when things were repeated it wasn't overdone, you balanced it out very well. The poem was almost like a song, and I don't think I have read many that were so much like a song. The descriptions were very clear and pretty. I thought this was very well written. I am impressed. Good job!
