gulsher JOHN

A Scared Fairy

Sweet and melodious as Homeric rhymes,
But had a life of tragedy prime.
Faraway from vanity
She was as sacred as Trinity.

In a harsh countryside
from a barbaric tribe;
She was like a wild rose
Deprived from her repose.

What ail thee O! Fairy Queen?
Such woes and sorrow I had never seen.
Upon my plaintive query
At once her face got scary.

'Since got conscious
Immersed into this life noxious
Never had a second of sweet willing,
Always been threatened of honor-killing.'

'Neither joy nor certitude, I had
but been blessed often with fortune bad'.
In sobs and sigh-many a time
She had versed her past in melancholy rhymes.

Alone and distant as a polar star,
Helpless was I to wage a war,
And her wild wide scary eyes,
Made my dreams full of cries.

    Far way form vanity...far way (faraway?) FROM? i correct, G.j.?

    'Since had conscious...i don't understand why the apostrophe is in front of 'Since.........and do you mean consciousness (since birth) ? of course conscious makes the rhyme; maybe that is why you used it. i see the other apostrophes.....i think they are called apostrophes. so now i think you are paraphrasing the Fairy Queen's answer to you. ok.

    but i REALLY don't believe you want bliss here: .....
    'Neither joy nor certitude I had
    Always bliss with fortune bad.'

    as bliss means, according to the computer, : ....


    Perfect happiness; great joy.

    Something providing such happiness.

    i especially enjoyed reading the following; .....i mean the poet created some artistic lines to describe a grim situation.

    What ail thee O! Fairy Queen?
    Such woes and sorrow I had never seen,
    Upon my plaintive query
    At once her face got scary.

    AND i especially enjoyed the following lines: ....

    Alone and distant as polar star
    Helpless was I to wage a war,
    Her wild wide scary eyes
    Made my dreams full of cries. a fine poem. thanks for sharing. bri (Report) Reply

    It's good to create fantasies and fairy-tales in this topsy-turvy world and all chaotic disorders, a temporary though a complete escape... (Report) Reply

    Here I am to complete it LOL

    Superbbbbb Gulsher. You really have amazing ability to create poems that feel like the tiny raindrops of the rain in summer, keeps fresh and alive. The rhythm is amazing and the flow is like the flow of the cold fresh stream down the mountain peaks of Kalam

    Fabulous. The similes and metaphors are of high literary standards. Touching
