The Egregious Lie Regarding Tinkerbell’s Revenge

After Tinker Bell died,

Peter couldn’t remember her.

Do my dead parents

haunt my peripherals

because they fear similar fates?

 

Fairies are too small

to hold more than one feeling

at a time. When dreamy

unspoken words dissipate

into unsavory vapor,

 

I envy them.

    • Oh i do my homework! We can’t have the reader doubting the verisimilitude of my poems about death, angst, regret, and fairies, can we? 😉

      Thank you for reading.

  1. I dunno. Fairies have a lot of feelings in a little body. I’m under 5′ tall so I understand them. Excellent poem with layers of meaning and poignant. I don’t think Peter forgot her, he just moved on to other things. Equally sad.

    • I’ll have to take your word for it. Perhaps that was the lie? I haven’t had the honor of chilling with any fairies, so I’m no expert. 😉

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I agree that if Peter just moved on, that would be just as sad.
