I’m in love with a fairytale

“I’m in love with a fairytale even though it hurts,
’cause I don’t care if I lose my mind, I’m already cursed …”

~Alexander Rybak

reflections on paper over slick colors
only the date remains to cast the years gone
it’s hard to draw the memories blank
letting the warmth of one summer night crack

the melody of the violin has faded away
but the music of the day I still remember
adagio in the green of his eyes
rondo in my veins, prelude to our little utopia

he was swimming in glory over my conquered heart
i was soundless, drunk from the flames on his skin
he was in love with a fairytale
i’m still breathing the flashbacks of his smile

    Fabulous! I’m sitting here clapping hands and smiling. Hugely talented and what a fine homage to him is this post and your lovely poem, Blaga! This is the best of my day. Bravo! Thank you.

    Several quite extraordinary phrases here: “draw memories blank” “cast the years” adagio to utopia (wonderful) “breathing flashbacks of his smile”. Well in short, the entire poem is well done.

      Always happy to make someone smiling :)! I’m glad you like the poem, Jamie! I knew you would like the music, the violin play is extraordinary, isn’t it? Happy days!

    Your poem is very, very good, Blaga. Such great expressions for the feelings this artist stirs.

    Oh, this is so beautifully melancholy and romantic – thoroughly enjoyed reading this – in fact I read it three times to savour it.

    ha! I used to be a dreamer, believing in fairytales then I came a fool by insertion of too much I guess…

    This reminds me of the song :’Fairy tales do come true when/if it happens to you”

    see basically saying they are true WHEN/IF they occur so until that happens phhtt, nice piece though. I am too much of a cynic does that make sense?

    It is a nice piece in and of itself….loved the video :) Enjoy the rally!

    Lovely poem! I must look him up, seems interesting. I love the violin, the music is so beautiful.

    I like the idea of being in love with a fairytale, makes life seem more hopeful in a way, though at the same time we have to think real.

    • Broken Sparkles Says:

      Well, fairytales happen often, the question is, what do you do to hold it forever, because in non of the fairytales I’ve read they tell you what happens after “… and they lived happily ever after…”, did they really do that? Thanks S.! Lovely morning with few comments from you!

  27. Someone is Special Says:

    Fabulous poem.. Loved it..
