fractured fable

and there he goes/so perfectly/the kind of lawless/i wish i could be

— taylor swift

once upon a time i believed a beautiful lie

or maybe it was a version of truth diluted

but if you had beckoned i might have come

you made me remember my dreams

of chivalry and adventure and fair maidens

who could keep pace with knights of old

you danced in and out of my life light-footed

confident the way i always wanted to be

perfection in every twist, snap and spin

you wished for half-light in your hands

my half-life slowly decayed and died

with the remnants of trampled dreams

once upon a time i believed a beautiful lie

once between a life i penned a beautiful letdown

once beyond a love i found a beauty above you
