A Rotten Fairytale
I guess it’s another installment of Twisted Fairytale… It’s fun, and I have plenty of ideas xD
So, this one isn’t quite as dark :>
Raindrops kissed her cheecks as she spun in the rain. Happiness shone through her features as elation at the unbound freedom she felt released within her chest. It curled into a content ball deep in her soul, reveling in the feeling that all was good and well. Heavenly water smoothed over her inky hair, drifted over her brows and caught like liquid diamonds on her eyelashes.
Then her smile turned wry.
Salty beads bubbled from the corners of her eyes, joining the barrarge of sky tears that now beat down mercilessly, just like the heavy stares that peered through half open windows, disapproving eyes that followed her every twirl.
It felt as if her heart was chained to a tether and she had run too far, too fast. It jerked back violently, tossing her back into a cage of words; a cage that was built ever stronger, ever thicker, ever without an end. It was like the key has been offered to her once, to end this fractured fairytale, but delusions of unearned wisdom had slapped the hand and tossed it just out of reach.
Just a little bit further
Her arm clawed itself out from the bars.
stretch a little bit more
her fingers strained for the little more they could extend.
scootch just a little bit closer.
She wished and cried for the whim of the wind to blow her direction just once.
Out of reach; mocking her with its nearness, reminding her of the stupid idealism that she had wrapped herself in and blinded her to the cruel truth that wanted to swallow her whole.
Heroines don’t cry.
So the sky cried for her.
