Masked Figures in Sparkling Gossamer
beckon to me with their crystal glass fans
to follow their lead and to come closer
and with them I will travel to their lands

Of make believe, bright hopes, and glitter dreams
I will dance on the petals of flowers
and the dresses I wear will have no seams
confetti will fall from April Showers

Onto the shoulders of the Briar Queen
Pale and beautiful, with blue river-veins
She is the ruler of all that is unseen
but is kept prisoner by rose-thorn chains

At the end, I don't know if it's day
still, but I know I had danced with the fae.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

This beautiful!
