Rumor of a Fairy Tale

Throughout history,
children have been raised on fairy tales
and cotton candy dreams
And when you are young,
it is the only way to be…
For the promise you find
in the story books
feels so incredible
And your heart soars in love
as you glide among their gold-leaved pages
However, as you mature in life
Reality finds his way to your door
And wakes you from your fanciful slumber
Silent jeers lingering in his eyes
As he shows you the window to the world
Through his eyes
Just a rumor, love
Rumor of a fairy tale
