A Dark Fairy Tale

A Dark Fairy Tale

written by: Yasmin Hemmat


She lived in a fairyland, the land of dreams,
Among crimson flowers and golden streams.

But the wicked monster of grief,
made the Joy wither leaf by leaf.

Then the bud of laughter shriveled on her lips,
the world went dark and there came a total eclipse.

She stared at moonless sky,
Where stars to darkness die.

Then a cold metallic burst of sin,
Gave her strength within.

She decided to take revenge,
Until her life reached to the end.

So when the world of fairies turned into dust,
She turned into a bloody beast, not to trust.
