If flowers could speak
what would they say?
“Here we are, we live another day,”
If I could speak my heart’s desire,
what would it say?
I get to breathe, see, feel, love, and hurt again…
Happy endings only exist in fairy tales
words ending in… ‘And they lived Happily Ever After’
but what are fairy tales if not
what has occurred before?
whether by another’s imagination
or a terribly ingenious fictional story
Borne from one mind to another, to paper
and from my lips to yours
Happily ever after is what we make it.
So, lose the glass slippers
Show me who you are
the one you have forgotten
Because this is where true fairy tales
In your truth,
