And in lost sanity, she found,
where madness consumed,
locked doors to greet her.
Yet, no passage through for
her broken body;
she drags her legs, deformed.

Scented shadows left behind,
soothing, but overwhelming,
and intangible fields of sorrow
beckon her to chasms, a garden;
lamentable deceit.

Unreal, all imagined, and yet
with bloodied legs to carry her
freedom, still so far.

Guided by her heart,
led astray by the voices,
hopeless all, as her life flows.
Every second, her death awaits.

Base sin, calling to her
as she withers,
as she withers.

Snow White

No chalice spilled
yet poison coloured her cheeks
The flesh within, tainted
Rosy shell bleeding the toxins at her bite

Down the rabbit hole

Crystalline thorns of alice-blue
pierce and break
from within the spiral.
Tearing flesh
in the fall.
Sent shivering.
Crawling, and trails
scarlet-stained.

To her feet, impossible
and dragging her body through.
Curiosity and wonderment;
punished, for her sin.

Then colours fade
to muted greys

Whispers striating;
enveloping, surrounding
monotonous and cruel.
Yet she breaks through.

Her path, she leaves behind bloodied

And cries of awe,
through the searing pain,
before opiate-essence, dark
and where mad delusions follow.

And Cinderella, poisoned

And Cinderella, poisoned,
in Salem dwells
a fevered hell
where the fire, stoked,
and the final knell
ends not the spell.
But the fairy tale
no longer tells
of the broken, burning shell
A charming love for her, forgotten
an end to his passionate swell
so into sorrow, she fell
All this, she foretells
