Fairy tales do not teach children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed.


your eyes speak the words
you do not say.
but oh, how i wish you'd say them.
so i don't have to listen
to the sound of your voice
to know that it is safe.
so i don't have to watch
your every move
to know whether it will be okay.
wait, please,
don't close your eyes,
we're all afraid.
if you won't let us see,
how are we supposed to help you?
if you can't see,
how are things supposed to change?
please, please,
don't close your eyes.
we're all afraid.
