    Everything's Not Perfect.

    Yeah, I used to believe in 'em. Doesn't everyone? Maybe I just stuck to the princesses and butterflies and I never let go of it. Fairy tales and magical dust.. that's what got me. xDYet fairy tales now have no meaning to me. And my age isn't really a factor of why I shouldn't...

    Now I'M Lost...

    You're the cause. You with your angelic face and innocent demeanor. You're the one to blame. At first you were a fairytale, a beautiful folklore. But now I see you for what you truly are.....

    I Wish They Were Real.

    I sometimes wish that I could be Cinderella except I don't want the Prince; I want the knight instead. I want to live happily ever after with my knight in shining armor.

    Sometimes I find much more sense and meaning in fairy tales than in nowdays books. Just because they are more childish it doesn't mean they are senseless.
