Risk it all for love
I never thought
I could do that
Would do that
I don’t even know
Why I love you
The way I do
I’m drawn to you
In an unearthly way
I’d follow you to hell
I’d walk through the fires
And know I was safe
Because I’m by your side
I’d cross oceans
And deserts to find you
You’re my universe
The center of everything that is
And ever will be
And I know you’ll be my downfall…. my angel of death
The demon took the form of a man
He sold her the fairytale she always dreamed of
She was none the wiser
You see, he was beautiful but not in the way anyone but her could see
For it was an elaborate trap
He wanted to consume her and everything that made her special
So, she fell and he snickered
As days went by, the mask slowly fell
But she had stars in her eyes
No matter how much he showed her
She kept believing in his not existent goodness
And she slowly crumbled
As darkness was taking over
But she kept trying
Because she believed that he had a heart, he must have one
It couldn’t of been a lie
Then one night, he fell to the ground and started laughing… and she knew.
She knew that even if she was to die, at least it would be by his hand
Because she had stars in her eyes…
Do you believe in fairytales?
Even at 28.
Not in the literal sense.
But the idea.
The idea of happy endings.
The idea of true love.
The idea of being saved.
Maybe not by some guy, but herself.
Happy with herself.
Then, just then
Maybe she can have those with someone
In this wackness
As odd as her
To wander through the ether
In their own
A different sorta fairytale.
You’re words drip from your lips, like the dew drops on the tips of blades of freshly cut grass.
Pulling me closer into your madness, your storm…
and I, I have lost control.

You could call me a hopeless romantic.A dreamer, a lover.
A believer in fairytales.
I’ve always dreamed of a love, an unattainable kind of love.
A love, only a hopeless romantic would dream of…
the kind of love that is…
Gut wrenching, all encompassing, rip your heart out, chivalry isn’t dead, all consuming, amazingly, tragic, heart breakingly beautiful, hopeless, passionate, love.
The kind of love that makes you fucking crazy.
The kind that makes you hate going to sleep because staying up is so much better.
The kind that makes you feel a sort of electricity, a buzzing. That puts a knot in your stomach.
That turns songs, into beautiful confessions of your love.
That tortures and ignites the soul.
Do I have your blessing? I said yes to him.
I took that leap.
I don’t know what’s going to happen.
I don’t know if this is the right choice.
I don’t know what you would say.
Would you choose him for me?
I wish I knew what you would say.
I wish it was you.
I wish it was always you.
Because your my dream.

She was an impossible dreamThe moon I could never reach
And in her eyes I was lost
And in those nights where the moon meets the ocean to dance
We would meet in my dreams, if just for a moment
And that was okay
My impossible dream
