I knew


I trotted in the bountiful meadows,
a rustling noise obscured my grazing.
I knew I should have left earlier.
My heart raced, waiting for my fate.

A strange thing with long brown hair,
stared back at me with awful eyes.
I knew I should have left earlier.
I breathed heavily, fight or flight.

I backed away slowly until it spoke,
“I finally found a unicorn.” it said.
I knew I should have left earlier.
I was frozen in its hazel gaze.

The horn on my head glowed,
It never has done that before.
I knew I should have left earlier.
I brayed, “Nooo!” kicking my hooves.

It spoke again, with gentle concern,
“Don’t be frightened.” It put it’s hand out.
I knew I should have left earlier.
My horn was pulling me closer.

It touched my frightened face,
a gentle fog filled the meadow.
I knew I should have left earlier.
My reflection was where I once stood.

Memories flooded back like water,
I was cursed in a unicorn body.
I knew I shouldn’t have left earlier.
I was restored to who I once was.
