157 (who?)
I'm so tired of writing love stories;
when I've not had one of my own.
I'm so weary of pretending I'm beautiful;
when my looks could turn a man to stone.

I'm so fatigued waiting for my prince;
when I'm not even a princess.
I'm so sick of pretending to be a siren;
when I could barely pass for an enchantress.

I'll tear down this repulsive prison of a
they call the mind,
brick by hideous brick;
and write my own fairytale at last.
Because what's the point of pretending to know romance just to write a story with it...

When you can try to break down the fortress in your mind and experience it for yourself?

My feelings after contemplating about certain things late last night in a nutshell.

I really do want to be the princess to a prince who's out there, perhaps for me. I'm just...utterly terrified no one will think I'm good enough. I always have been. I honestly want to try and crush those bricks of uncertainty...I just need someone to hand me the hammer.

Beautiful, and striking to the core. I want a fairytale just like you, and I bet many others do too.

You may not think you're beautiful, you know, but I think you are. And you have so many other good qualities as well. You just need to wait for a guy who can see them.

No matter what, keep writing things. Your poetry is beautiful, your stories are interesting, and you're just overall very good.

I saw this on the front page (just scrolled down a bit, you know), and I have to say that it certainly deserved that spot. Lots of emotion that's been expressively crammed into a few words. Excellent work!

This poem is so appealing. I feel that many can relate to it, including myself. It feels great knowing that their are others who feel and share this cause of frustration. It's comforting.

:hug: I'm glad I'm not the only one who had these feelings, and I'm glad I wrote this.

Adding to the almost 150 people who already think this is wonderful, I enjoyed this piece. I liked the images, especially that of the castle. You said a lot in a very short time.
