Turning Titles Into Poetry

If you don't follow Janet Reid's blog, you should. Mainly, because she has THIS CONTEST going on until tomorrow. This is/was my submission:

The Disenchanting Truth

The Truth About Forever
Is that Bright And Shiny Morning(s)
Are for the Lucky One(s).

At Second Glance,
The Little Prince won't come
To The Rescue, 
Which means She's Come Undone. 

The Girl Who Played With Fire,
Was found Running With Scissors,
Saying, "Someday My Prince Will Come,"
Unaware of The Slow Vanishing.

She'd Fallen
And become a Loose Girl
Who live in The Glass Castle
Full of Disenchantments and Stolen Innocence. 

She was A Woman Betrayed.
She wasn't Lucky.

Counting The Hours,
She learned
Certain Girls aren't Those Who Save Us.

And That's How I Live Now.





Good luck to all those who enter!

Please know that if you comment and I don't respond, it's not because I don't love you. It's because I don't have wifi, but I do have a bad memory.
