A tale in poems

The time of light and dark
(The pet store in the betta's POV)
In a world filled with many of my kind,
in a place where we all come and go,
one day they come,
another they disappear,
and i have watched the cycle for so long,
Night,
day,
neither one exist here,
for beyond the confines of these white walls,
lies the world of which i once adored,
where did you all go wrong?
where am i?
what is this clear thing i cannot escape from?
my fins become torn,
the water which once loved me,
now has come to betray me,
my only friend now it seems,
are my thoughts,
Night,
day,
neither one exist here,
for beyond the confines of these white walls,
lies the world that now has turned on me.

Spinning
(being taken "home")
The world is spinning,
round and round,
i see light which dissolves into a brown darkness,
an ominous hum drifts through the air,
my water shakes, and quakes, and i hope,
oh i can only hope, but for what?
Please let me be freed from my prison!
Oh, i beg of you, one of the things that turned on me,
one of the things that put me in this nightmare,
to be the one to wake me up.

Awakening to home. (what is home?)
(being put in the tank)

I don't remember much,
.....ominous hum........
.........brown darkness....
but im sure,
my wish has been granted.
i have awakened from my nightmare...
my water loves me once again,
the clear thing that once confined me has been destroyed,
the age of sorrow is now over at last,
food awaits me,
my fins no longer burn,
warmth envelopes my body,
yet i wonder what is this place?
One of the wardens of the jail in the nightmare comes up to me,
a smile on her face,
sunlight peaks into my dream,
day is now alive once again,
the time of neutrality is also over,
day, night, time, and the changing seasons once again paint the world,
what is my dream?
what is home?
That smile,
........where did you all go wrong....
they did not all go wrong,
she was not a warden,
she was not evil,
she was my wish that became reality.

Peace and joy

Every morning Wish would come,
she brought me food,
or sometimes Wish would take my water then put it back,
that scared me,
My new home was humongous,
it was beautiful and was a treasure of mine,
and one day i was fed a delicacy i had only heard of,
blood worms,
they gently crunch as i chew then turn soft,
the flavor is richer than any pellet,
and is in short- the best food in the universe,
every day i recieve them and in gratitude,
my magnum opus, my bubblenest,
grows more grand each day.

Love

My bubblenest was amazing,
and all was sound and quiet,
my water loved me still and my colors were vivid as ever,
out of the blue something was formed by the waters surface,
Wish must have used magic or something,
i can't think of anything else that could have created what i saw,
the water formed a clear cup...like the one i was once tortured in,
the sight at first was like a demon ready to eat me alive,
but then the beast was slain and before me eyes lay an angel,
an angel of short fins and a plump little belly,
she had beautiful blue and purple colors like mine,
and her eyes were orbs of everything wonderful in the world,
and there she floated waiting for me,
there was where my life would really start.
