The fairytales you know, or thought you did.
fairytales

do you want to hear a story
about how magic isn't real?
about how your prince is never
coming to save you? about how
the witch was never really dead?

do you want to hear a story
about how a little girl knew
what she was doing when she
strayed from her path? about a
boy who knew it was impossible
to run away from growing up?
about the children who never
really flew from thier window?


sit down, let me tell you a story
about the beast who never
found love. about the shoe that
was never supposed to fit. about
the mermaid who drowned in her
own ocean home. about the boy
who found out there's nothing to
stand on when you're in the sky.

sit down, now, and let me tell
you about the stories
you thought you knew,
but never really did.
