I couldn't leave. if I left it would just be to wallow in myself and I've done that long enough. so...I'm back?

a love letter to my villains

well, i burned in self-induced hell
but from the ashes i forged glass slippers
sunk my teeth into poison apples, 
intoxicated from the artificial alcohol
how ironic that death's kiss gently ended my demise
prince charming made a brief appearance in blue light
i don't love you anymore
but you helped me love me, for that i am eternally grateful
hibernated, slumbered, it may have well been a century
and i learned to breathe underwater
and emerge victorious against unseen demons
little mermaid with the halo of vermilion,
idol of my youth, you taught me well
the yellow dandelions dotting concrete curbs may be weeds
but i wove a flower crown, i reign
in this kingdom, i reign for myself alone
the optimist in me has conceded-
happy endings may exist only for
elegant calligraphy inscribed on parchment
but i can still
painted in the vivid shades of reality
create a fairy tale

    Replying: Ohhh that makes sense XD. In my area, we don't have many Asian-American people, mostly just Hispanic, Indian, and caucasian. So I wouldn't know that, but I'm glad I do now.
