Paranormal & Normal

I love watching classic movies with my kids. We watched "Back to the Future" over the weekend and they sat through the whole thing. I love that movie! So 80s! (and did you realize that Back to the Future 2, 30 years from 1985 is coming up in only 4 years? AH!)

Well, the PAD #8 challenges (2 for Tuesday) are Paranormal and Normal. It made me think of Michael J. Fox roles, like "Teen Wolf" vs "Back to the Future" or just Alex P. Keaton, remember Family Ties? Ah, the innocent 80s, right? Ha ha! Anyway, here is my little poetic saga...

Hexia                                  &                                 Harold
Born in her tree                                                     Teased all his life
Bonded for life                                                  For being so smart
Carefree until                                              He escaped in his books
Construction brought strife                                 There was his heart

Around her arose                                      He role played online
A house made for children                         with friends just like him
To learn and to play                                       Defeating them all
While she must stay hidden                          He knew how to win

When she was of age                               As high school wore on
She entered the school                               He dreaded each morn
Enrolled as a student                             To face the cruel mockers
And followed each rule                    He wished they weren’t born

Oh to be human                              Oh for a door
And then graduate                          To a fantasy realm
To travel and mingle                 A world would be better
And find a soul mate                     With him at the helm

The sun rose that day
But somehow seemed brighter
Hexia’s hue
Glowed green just to spite her

Teasing ensued
She started to cry
Sir Harold stepped in
What a nice guy!

When the bell rang,
The crowd went inside
And Hexia invited
Her savior abide.

Have a fantastical day!

Hey there,
I am just passing through from Alex's blog hop, and I am still working my way around all the blogs on the list. So I thought I would say a quick "hello" and I will stop by when I can. Great blog!!

You are once again ROCKING the poetry. Very cool. I am a super big fan of all Michael J Fox's 80's goodness. Awesome movies. I think I need to rent them this weekend and see what my kids think.

Love the poem. Very clever.

I love Michael J. Fox! And I love Back to the Future. My son just asked me if we could watch them the other day. I guess they were having a commercial for them.

Only 4 years? I'm so disappointed they haven't invented that nifty freeze dried food thing.

Love your poetry :)
