Trying To Find Home

The evil Sh’man trapped Beauty, the fairy, and this poem is when she has finally escaped and must make her journey back into the light and return home. 

This is one poem in the collection. They are a series of poems that tell a story. The story is about a war. A battle between wills and power struggles of any type. In this poem series  fairies fight for for the sake of  sanity. Making life livable even after human traumas. It is the will to survive when chaos seems to be in control. Escapism is the only way for survival of the life in a spirit.
The Fairies bring joy, wonder and a grasping of imagination in order to smile and appreciate innocence in a world of bleakness.


“Awe,” the radiance; so bright.
Then, follow it, with all might.
The road course shall lead by day
Rocks, turns, stickers and curves
Climb anyway…


My prejudiced thoughts;
Lofty visions of you.
Fiery images deflect a golden hue.
Imagined you, bronzed, dazzling, and vein.
We danced; then came the rain.


Caught too long there.
Idol thoughts; so dear.
Washed away; with my tear.
My arms bound, and mouth sealed.
Woven. Hey! What’s the deal?


OH, My God! I’ve Been Caught!
The coven’s web intently taut!
The feast I am. His delight.
Oh, fairy friend! By the firelight!
Here I am!


Now the spiders home virtually unseen,
Vaguely tucks into that corner beam.
But, see the dim light, growing so bright?
A fairy severs the silk, so tight.
And, falling from the web of fright.


Still arms tangled by silk threads
Pushing out bracing the fall
The spider and the fairy brawl
Wham, Bam, to and fro, from the deathly fight they bow
Looking, whom’s, my fairy friend? Noticing it must be Joe.


Underneath the spider
Joe waves thumbs up, You’re alright!
Now run like hell! To the light!
Run away little bait!
For, the fate of the firefly might be too late…

  1. This is a very nicely written poem, I love the use of rhyming in certain parts of the poem and the imagery you use at the beginning and the end is very nice as well. The story was interesting and flowed nicely from each part of the poem.

        1. Well, I want to stay caught up with everyone as not responding has away of making me feel lazy and uncaring… I’m so appreciative of people stopping by to say Hi… Thanks for being understanding.

  2. Dear Bojenn reading poetry in english is not my strengh, long time ago at school my english teacher made us read some poems, but until now, just through this blogging 101 i come to read your poems. I need to take time and read slowly , think on the meaning , and just take the time and peace to allow me that. I remember writing one poem long time ago, during a time I was in love but far away from my beloved man. I should be free of shame and fear of being judged, possible in the future i need to tailor a hidden identity to feel secure and fluent expressing. I am looking for a job , entreprises and psycologs are judging and giving conceps on you as a person. That make me fear on that direction. No matter if you do not understand the written text, There are levels of reading, you can probably read the photos, A person reads also pictures and drawings.

    1. Yes, I think I understand your fears and yes, they (The possible employers) do read and judge the prospective employee by what is posted. This is a fact and I do think pen names are advisable, but not 100% preventable from discovery of the real person’s identity. Especially when the common social media website is linked to the alias website. It could get confusing and convoluted trying to keep them separate.


    1. Thank you, Maria as you’ve gone much deeper into this poem than anyone else, and I’m glad you asked…
      Thank you.
      The Fairy Joe was actually a friend of mine that came to stay with me after a very bad divorce. While “Joe” was here staying with me, he taught me how to love music again, how to dance, how to laugh again and how to watch the skies and look for magic in all of life. “Fairy Joe” also had a naughty side where I was glad when he left my home. It was time as he came to teach me to live again, but I didn’t care to live as dangerously as he, “Joe.”
      He was perfect for that time so I named the Fairy Joe from his character, quite naughty, but someone I needed for that time.

      Thanks for asking Maria

    2. And, Maria, all of my poems, for the most part, are metaphors, smilies and allegories. Are you interested in this kind of writing?
      These have always been my favorite type of stories, those with double meanings and have more than one lesson.

      I went to your page to read, and since my Spanish is not 100%, I read and understood what I could.

      Do you write poetry, as well?

  3. I like your writing style. Awesome poem in my opinion, I love the fact that you explained in a comment that it is your favorite and that you do not know why more do not like it. Keep believing in yourself, maybe you will be set free from the web once again, and your poem will go viral.

    1. Thank you for your encouragement about this poem and for me to keep believing. We need to hear others speak to us. Thank you so much for stopping by to read and then to take the time to comment. You have touched me.


  4. I decided to like my own poem. This is an old one and one of my favorites that I created back in 2009. Published it in 2010… I don’t know why it hasn’t received more likes, I guess it means something special to me…
