Fairy Tales Exposed
I see, even with eyes closed in sleep, dishonesty. When the vow to love is taken, within the beauty of a kiss, our poetry becomes visible. He or me, the cooing partner, easing us into the territory of the heart, not to be lost. The verdict of truth should speak with great care and exactitude from our caring lips, but deep sleep can teach that elapsed time does not always work in our favor. Therefore, listening to tales from either emperors or mendicants sometimes exposes the varied shapes of fairy tales - and I will lose all, if I only believe in the merits of fantasy, and not its deficits.
