and so the captain stole not only a dance, but the princess’s heart
"They are dead," he says.
"And you are alive and have been for eons.
When will you stop walking amongst the ghosts?"
the stars stuck to my ceiling
don’t glow in the dark anymore
all the city lights combined
would only be half
as bright as you
with each page turn,
I wonder if it is me you love
or the book itself
i know that i will never truly be human,
but you make me want to try
you were not meant to be a dying star,
not when you could burn as brightly as the sun
