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


I hate the way the silence
cuts my heart in two.
But it's the only way I can
hide all my wounds from you.
So with my tongue between my teeth
I swallow blood and smile.
Screaming on the inside so I can
laugh on the out.
