OF FICTION AND FAIRYTALES
narrative poem


My character took me by the hand when I was six
Whirled me through the sea and the sky and the stars
Laughed with silver eyes, and I, enchanted
Shared with him my innermost desires.

I wanted to be a librarian
Because they could read books all day, and it
Didn’t seem like too much work.
Check in, check out, apply a sticker or two
On the books’ unbroken spines
And when a page ripped, I’d tape it up
With that special book tape all librarians owned
My father wanted me to be a doctor. Instead,
I would become a doctor of fairytales.

So my invention played his part in my land of fiction
And smiled and danced me through my dreams
Changing face and form with breathless fluidity
Black-haired one day and gold the next
One time he came from a faraway forest
Traveling miles and miles and miles
Just to meet me. Another time
He lived in the house next door
A welcome replacement for our cantankerous neighbor.

We were best friends, he and I
One time in class, he sprouted wings
And brought me to a castle in the sky
Where magic was real and monsters didn’t exist
And I was fed my favorite chocolate cake in abundance.

Time flew too fast
And he began to fade - faster, faster
Until he was invisible in the morning light
So I picked up a pen and a pad of paper
And wrote him into
A fairytale.

This thread is lonely; it's sad that people seem to skip over the longer works.

I like the whole theme of children's innocent dreams here. i can really relate, because I felt like this, that I had an imaginary friend who later become a character in my (unwritten) stories. He was a good friend. But anyways, great work. I'll keep an eye out for more works if you're still, you know, posting.

Unfortunately. I've seen some longer works on here and on other sites that don't get nearly the amount of recognition they deserve.

Again, thanks! I might post more stuff in the future – I have a few works that I've stored on my computer that may someday see daylight.

If this is any indication of your work, then you should definitely post more. The imagery here really got me, I'm close to crying.

May those who love us love us And those who don't love us May God turn their hearts, And if He doesn't turn their hearts, May He turn their ankles, So we'll know them by their limping.

"A doctor of fairytales." Sounds about right. Only in this case it was more like giving your friend a home the only way you could. This has some beautiful imagery, I hope you have written more since you posted this.

I had forgotten about this- it feels appropriate, somehow, that it would show up in my subscriptions list now.

And I agree with starcookie, I sincerely hope you kept writing after this was posted.
