as if (faerie tales for mortals)


as if (faerie tales for mortals)


i am living my life as if
i am living my life askew
i am living my life awry

i am living my life as if you

as if you
as if you
as if you

like a mutated Whip-poor-will
singing its soundtrack
to my life lived off-center

as if you always had
as if you could
as if i mattered
as if you would

as if planets realign
as if the faeries listen
as if the universe sends signs
as if poems list them

i am living my life as if
i am living my life askew
i am living my life awry

i am living my life as if you

as if you
as if you
as if you

it’s a melancholy tale
it’s a melancholy song

it’s walking a path unfurrowed
it’s believing this is the only true

i am living my life as if you
it’s all i know to be
it’s all i know to do
