Favorite Quote:
That's either snow or a bunch of white flowers.

You said I was your princess
And that tiara you gave me,
Handmade and hastily cut out
Bejeweled with Crayola shades of ruby
Well, it made me feel royal
But this paper-crown princess
Was always destined to the shredder
And I’m thinking back to the
Inflatable latex castles I used to call home
Realizing I’ve had more ups and downs with you
Than while jumping in them
