"i don't love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: i love you as one loves certain dark things, secretly, between the shadow and the soul."
-Pablo Neruda

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.

Fairy Tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. --G.K. Chesteron

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!
