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
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.
