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.


We never watched the fireworks.
I guess we never felt the need,
because they were so bright
inside of us
we didn't need to see
the sparks; the lights
that emanated brilliance in the sky
that we saw every time we gazed
into each others eyes.
We felt the cannonades
with every kiss, each embrace.
Every subtle touch
parroting through our veins.
We never watched the fireworks.
I guess we never felt the need.
But watching them now,
me alone, you gone,
the explosions reverberate
throughout the emptiness inside me.
