Storyteller’s Wish

Should I change the genre of my story? A horror or thriller instead? Better not a romance or comedy Just something that might not make me dead.

Storyteller’s Wish is a poem written by Reiu Somao-I and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Something Spooky for the month of October

 

Storyteller’s Wish

 

I write love stories

Read many romantic entries

Cringe for every sweet lines

Though felt giddy for many times

But, I wonder why I can’t tell mine?

Perhaps it’s not even worth a dime.

I wanted to write my own story

Yet the ending seems gory

Full of blood shedding tears

Tragic, bitter and full of fears

Mistrust, cheating and rebound

No luck was there to be found

I’ve given so many love lines

Yet, why do they always fail?

I build my walls and barricade

I don’t want to ride in a ship that won’t sail

They say every story has its unique plot

But whenever I get there, I always get cut

Then bleed and the stain will forever remains

I’ll restart again with no one to blame

Can I just write a happy ending for me?

Would my writer let it be?

Or am I just a side character with no name?

Alas, that’s why it’s always been the same.

Watching in the sidelines

All of them talking about feelings

I heave a deep sigh

Rain in my world starts dripping

There’s always gray sky hiding my sun

I infinitely ask myself when it will be done?

If not, I just wish someone shares the same sky

I just don’t want to be left behind and sadly die

Should I change the genre of my story?

A horror or thriller instead?

Better not a romance or comedy

Just something that might not make me dead.

If this story won’t have a good ending

Can I just make it a cliffhanger?

If someone wanted to write it for me

I wish he would put me out of danger

I’m giving up my pen to continue this

Hoping someone to write the end as ease

Or, they could change it the way they like it

Maybe they would have a heart to keep it

A story that has no other characters in it.

How about adding magic, just a little bit?

Pass. It’s better to be in a painful reality

Rather than to be happy with false fantasy.
