A Broken Fairytale



Lavender scents the air
bringing memories
of a honey colored sky
smiling down upon us
as we lay entwined
on a blanket of moss.
I can still see the red wildflowers
blooming in a lover’s bouquet
at our feet.
Enchantment so perfect in its innocence
hypnotized us with forever.

Years have torn their way
across the universe leaving
 jagged scars.
The music of our heartbeats
remains as a bittersweet
song in my spirit.
I remember the beautiful days
of fairytale romance,
 but now live the reality
of its unhappy ending.
