Far From Real

She lives in a land far, far away,
In a Queendom of her own,
The land visited by nobody,
Built by her imagination.

 
It’s always icy cold there,
The reflection of her chilly heart.
But a blue rose rises from the snow,
A beautiful sign of hope.

 
Customs, rites and rituals,
All burnt in fiery fire,
Only thing she follows,
Is her broken, yet fierce heart.

 
She clings to her loyal puppy,
Only thing she adore about reality.
After all, her childhood dream
Was to become a dog fairy.

She sometimes wanders down,
To the vile streets of reality,
And in the absurdist of situations,
She’s found throwing love around.

 
The graffiti on the walls,
Lovers sharing a kiss,
All subject to deathly conspiracy,
Conspiracy called reality.

 
So, she hides cooped up
In her tower of imagination,
Wearing her favorite long tee,
Ruling her Queendom.
 

Don’t ask about her home town,
Or her favorite notable person,
Cause she’s been far gone,
Into the realm of imagination.

 
Outside her window,
Pink clouds float,
And the news headline…
She never reads them!

 
Sometimes, she visits the real world,
Picks old letters and crumbled papers,
That’s when she breaks down,
And reduces to nothing but ashes.

 
Then she rises like a Phoenix.
She’s not a Cinderella,
But Merida from Brave,
Strong-willed and fierce.

She’s friends with the ghosts,
Immune to gunshots,
She’s fearless,.
She’s the queen!

  3. Hey I really, really love this poem. In my mind I see the fearless Queen in her tower ruling her imaginary Queendom as she seizes on the rising blue rose. I am going to have to write today and soon! You have inspired me, o fierce loving Queen!

    Reminds me of the song “Nowhere Man” (here a female version) and the poem “The Lady of Shallot.” Though your work is your own, and it’s good.
