" a shattered world is only an opening into a new beginning with laughs, smiles, and love all around enter the world of the light and away from the broken darkness"

Upon galloping feet the meadows are my vast adventures,
The dancing grass tickling my bare feet,
As my hands soar to caught the kaleidoscope butterflies,
Yearning for even the tiniest grasp of the freedom I strive to achieve,
And then outside the tower doors steps out my father's glaze set hold on top of me like I am one of his specimen in his glass caged, Another display he keeps in pride in storing it away for all eternity,
In quickened haste he sweeps me off my feet, the wooden doors destroying the last glimpse of the world I sneaked,
His voice erupts from every corner of the tower the chains rattling on there place beside my bed post,
He says " this world is doomed unsafe for such a fragile self like you, that a princess must stay in the tower away from all the rest"
He comes so ever close to me his hot steamy breath and he whispers three little words that keeps me frozen,
Daddy knows best,
Over and over in this endless cycle,
Older and older I remain caged away in this tower of his,
As I star out with longing to the world. just out of reach,
My daddy's words echoed like a menacing shadow,
Never leaving,
Always suffocating me,
Daddy knows best

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

This is truly outstanding! "Kaleidoscope butterflies..." Sometimes I wonder how you come up with such powerful words :P I love the tower theme; unique and effective. This is a poem you just have to read again and again :P Yay Luna!! :P

"Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, I'm already better than them."

Fascinating poem! It reminds me a lot of Disney's Tangled. This poem almost seemed like it could be made into a story with the long lines yet it fit as a poem. It was a great read :) Also I think you meant "deemed" rather than "doomed". Just a small grammatical error.

so close- i've said this to others i've reviewed, and yours in one of the closest. you're nearing a style of poetry that i adore, and honestly, i can't wait to watch your writing develop and mature alongside you. it's going to be great watching you spit out pieces of greatness.
