A True Story (Short Story Slam Week 3, Poetry Potluck Week 39, ABC Wednesday on V)

Orphaned at a young age,

Kevin lived with Robin, a girl his parents helped to engage.

Belittling Kevin’s poeverty status,

Robin is determined to marry someone rich and powerful,

So, Kevin is isolated in a study near Bluebell Lake, feeling painful.


Kevin has turned into a handsome scholar all girls would adore,

He longs to see Robin, but fails to get the chance,

Thus loneliness drives him to the lake shore,

Where he reciites poetry to the fish that prance.


A carp spirit enjoys listening to Kevin’s brilliant words ever since,

She decides to turn into human form to meet her prince,

Dressed up exactly like Robin,

She paid him a visit and her beauty melted Kevin.


During a new year’s celebration,

Robin’s family saw something terrifying:

Kevin and “Robin” act like a married pair,

How can Robin disgrace her family with such unapproved love affair.


What Robin’s parents did not know about this lifeful storm,

is that “Robin” is actually the carp spirit’s human form:

Now they have two daughters to identify,

Sorrow hits them like swallowing a dead fly.


Both Robin claim to be true,

But only one Robin cares about Kevin, that’s the clue.

The case is reported to the King,

An official is sent to clear up everything.


Fake “Robin” is forgiven for her fault,

And given permission to remain human to marry Kevin as a result;

True Robin regrets what she has done,

She becomes friend of Kevin and his wife, and they have fun.

  1. A Very Cute story of Victory.

    Hi Jingle,

    I’ve been around, but haven’t been in the poetry writing mood lately. I posted a poem yesterday on http://annsshadowsofmymind.blogspot.com. I’m not the poet all you other poets are, so am taking a break from poetry.

    Have a wonderful day, and thanks for visiting my ABC Wednesday post today.

  2. Greetings, Jingle. Following the link from Warrior Muse’s site, all the A-Zr’s I wanted to visit (but didn’t) before April ran out. Lovely and original story.

  3. Hi, only took me personally a while to comprehend exactly what had been you actually trying to express with this, however , now i am into it. Only day or two backwards I just had been enthusiastic about the same matter, and even discovered the post. It’s a really pity that my best cousin can not look at it right now, we previously transmit it directly to them on e mail. by the way, I like your posture. Keep writing. 🙂
