In Honor of Erik, because he never found what he was denied
To Christine, because she played two men and destroyed true beauty
For Raoul, because he was a pawn as well as a victim
Dedicated to The Persian/Le Daroga, because without him we wouldnít know what happened
Refering to Humanity, because itís all your damn fault
Noting Time, because itís a real lying constant
Remarking on Redundancy, because it can break or make it always
Knowing Reality, because it loves to kick our asses
Forsaking Love, because you help destroy Innocence
Scorning the Present, because thatís not done enough either
Destroying Myself, because as a romantic I am pitiful
Killing Ideals, because the perfect life is Death
Dethroning Justice, because as she is blind she will only trust who ever is leading
Corruption Obliviousness, because itís not good to overlook whatís there
Breaking the Rules, because the past canít dictate any future as fools believe
Reluctantly Revering Live, because itís harsh ways make us so fanciful

Note: this is the result of me being obsessed with history, and I rarely paint a pretty picture: End Note

Extra Note: If you donít recognize the names and think Iím being racist, bugger off. Read a book if you want to understand. Ask if you want to know which book to invest your time in. My age should not be a basis for calling me stupid, like some Ďskim-readerí who told me I was ignorant when I state something that makes their statement turn them into a jackass I ranted about a blog or two back. Ignorance pisses me off: End Extra Note

This story is wrong
The supposed monster is not
Allowed to lose the maiden
Who they were forced to part the heart

This story is wrong
The spoiled princess should have
More sense than to think that
Her supposed love can only be handsome

This story is wrong
The bad guy isnít supposed
To gain the lady fair when
She cares about no one but fancy

This story is wrong
The narrator is only to give
An even and unbiased tale
And was the only role played right

This clichťd story is wrong
The broken lines and shattered parts
Fall to the feet of any audience that
Is in attendance who should have known better

Our story is wrong
It never cooperates with goals
And is at civil war with conflicts
With only one real explaination to tell

This story is wrong
Because Justice is a whore
Time makes the Truth a Lie
Love is a Myth for Fools who court fantasy

My story is wrong
I have no dreams of any future
I desire to help those beyond help by all ways
But this can not be for the simple realityÖ

This story is wrong
A beauty can never love a beast
Love only is the illusion people wear on their masks
Because they do not realize Life is rightÖ

This human story is wrong

"justice is a whore"

"Love only is the illusion..."

All this makes the "human story wrong". The words of wisdom seem to come very easily out of your PEN but if one cracks the shell of your muse, it contains anger more than PAIN. i have heard that PAIN makes the PEN but i think ANGER makes STEMBER. :) The way you hit straight into the eyes makes your work extra-ordinary. brilliant!!!

You're just as talented as your dad (Nicholas S. Stember) is. You should make this one into a short story to see how it comes out, the ideas in this one run quite strong.

A lot of anger here at what has presented itself over the decades as unattainable or mythic.

I am sure though that when these cliched fairy tales and stories were written, or fabricated as tenet, that they represented mindsets and hopes and dreams at that time they were conceived, and were never meant to become mainstays, or icons, in our degenerating society.

Man has mucked up much in his short reign on planet earth. His stewardship has certainly been tainted with agenda and meism.

Your write moved me Elizabeth. Thanks!

Very powerful write. Seems best that one should never have been born if they dwell in a fairy tale world. Reality is the maker of fools. Well written piece.
