Throwback Friday, A Fairy Tale Misread, by Ivor Steven

Not all fairy tales have a happy ending …

Go Dog Go Café

I wrote this reflective poem in October 2018

A Fairy-tale Misread

I’m slowly climbing out of bed

Feeling like an empty wood-shed

There’s a fire within, unfed

Yesterday’s ashes smoulder inside my head

Remembering the day we were wed

Our life was a rainbow, yellow, blue and red

Now I only dream of you instead

There you lay, among your ancestors beds

And I’m sorry, our fairy-tale was misread

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
