this is how it goes (the fairytale paradox)

by erenah

you can find your way out of the woods; the being

raised among the wolves; and you will seem

a queen among the flocks of swans, who

only know uncertainty when those forces unforeseen

confront them with mortality - but it is a rarity

to exist in that sphere, constantly, and neither

crown, nor hard-won wings are assistance

when it comes to the everyday things

(and so the emails remain unanswered, and you silence the telephone's rings)

just remember it means you made it out,

from wolves, and the chill twilight of the trees..

remember that there's starlight now

with time, you'll find your new bearings.
