Too fast to live, too young to die.

Falling like Alice
Wonderland in bliss
White rabbit's too fast
Caught in a trance
Will you dance?
Will you dance?
Feet tangled
Golden thread strangles
Heart's too heavy
Night's so dreary
What's the use of a slow song
If the hand I was holding
Isn't yours?
I close my eyes
Enter a land of dreamland fairy tales
Of castles and fairies
People with kaleidoscope scales
Masquerade's a mystery
Knowing that you're here with me
Like a maze
I'm lost in a daze
The girl with her heart thrown and broken
Too used and was darkened
In a shade of red
Like a boulevard of a thousand sunsets
I take a hand
With a hopeful wish
My eyes are closed, but I feel the warmth
Hands in a tight band
I open my eyes, and I feel the whispers
Of that dreamland fairytale
Light, fading and frail
Taking me back on a sail
On that boulevard with a thousand sunsets
A smile under the mask, I bet
Is my dreamland fairytale's
Magical talent

The author's comments:
Prom night and a heartbreak. A lost soul in a sea of people with colorful hopes and friendly faces. It's about a girl who's in a masquerade party, she knows he's there, but because of the masks, she doesn't know how to tell him apart from all the other boys in there.

The poem is a metaphor. It's about dreaming, losing and finding love at all the right places in which at the end, you'll eventually get your fairytale ending.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

wow!!! you got in the magazine?!!! total jealousy right here, totally! lol :D I loved the description all the way through this and even in some parts when i didn't understand, it was still completely beautiful. I love the line that says, people with kaleidoscope scales. just the sound of those words together sounds so beautiful! I kind of don't understand the last couple of lines though. i really wish i did!!! Nevertheless, the whole way through my eyes were glued to the page! Would you mind maybe reading some of my works??? I'd love to hear what you have to say....  `"" thumbs up! (and congrats on the print!)
