“Enough! You ask for fairness. I will offer mercy. The prince will become a dragon. He has 1,000 years to find a way to break the curse. If he fails, he continues as a dragon until his death. Vendola, Viola, and Vanolia, you may become a dragon as well and help protect him,” decided the eldest fairy, the midnight fairy.


I am young and feeling younger by the minute. I am not sure about life, but I do pay attention.

Life may be a journey, but you are my destination.

You are a surprise in a humdrum world. You are the mischievous, lone sun ray during a personal storm. You are the red in all my portraits.

I love you. I love you. I love you.

Dear Best Friend,

to his insistent fingers,


don’t touch me

in that tiny place

soggy, somber, sonnet.

your touch makes it

more murky and burdensome.

keep it small

or i will break
