Mystic This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I’m placing a firefly’s wing on your lips
and powdering your eyelashes
with butterfly dust, (so you can make the world fly)
because this is reality and faeries
don’t exist unless my happy ending does.

But you spoke too fast –
and the iridescent wing fell paper-like to the floor,

where I crunched it,
when I stepped in
for a kiss.

love it! "because this is reality and faeries don't exist unless my happy ending does" and "where I crunched it, when I stepped in for a kiss" are great lines!
