Far Away

Today we were supposed to mine our own material for post ideas.  I’d started another narrative poem a while back, so I took the opportunity to finish it.  I hope you enjoy! 🙂

connectionA long time ago
In a land far away,
There lived a young woman
Who dreamed of the day
When her lover would take her
Far, far away,

Far from the world
She had known all her life,
A world full of greed
And heartache and strife,
Where change was wrought
With the blade of a knife.

But year after year
And day after day…
