a present for you, I said.

mother says giving is better than receiving.

isn’t that lovely,

when I gave you everything I could and still I received nothing.

pretending isn’t fun anymore when reality creeps into every crevice,

opens every door and window.

look at me, look at me.

this was our fairytale,

except you were the dragon and I saved myself
