False Fairytale

Seriously Snow White!
He stole your kiss in the night!
Isn’t that just…
Prehaps a little creepy.
I mean if the guy can’t find a girl
Who is at least breathing.

And Rapunzele darling!
Have you never thought about your hair!
Use a hair grip
And pick the door lock!
You didn’t need to wait around
For some guy to help you to the ground!

Cinderella well…
What can I say? A glass slipper…
If it takes dressing up
To make the guy stand and stare,
I wouldn’t be bothered
Find someone less shallow who’ll care!

Now Sleeping beauty!
Now let me just say…
He woke you up thats all
Doesn’t mean he’ll have to stay!
In fact you’ll find, at least with me.
If he woke me up he’d be as dead as can be!

Now I’m not saying
That all guys are bad!
Just none are all perfect
But I can live with that.
Its the flaws that count as much as the good.
The highlight the bits that you love.

My message though?
I thought it was clear?
Female we rock!
Have you not seen us in heels!
We can do the impossible things
Not just one at a time!
And still look amazing
There is no past her prime!
And the guys?
Can you blame them
They have to make up the stories
All fairy tales
To keep up the facade
That we’re not better than them.
Because what are they really?
Without all the ego?
Would you still love them?
There is something about
That outer shell
That makes us girls want to
Break through all the more.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
