happy ending [poem]

I want to write a story about a happy ending
because sometimes
I’m afraid to move forward in my own plot
afraid of finding out
I’m not meant for that kind of life
I want to write a story about a whirlwind romance
because sometimes
I’m afraid that I’ll never be in love like that
trust someone like that again
and it makes me sad to have missed the chance
I want to write a story about a villain
without ending their tale at redemption
because sometimes
I’m afraid of my own darkness
but I’m more afraid of blind naiveté
and the danger of believing the best of bad people
I want to write a story about magic
because sometimes
I’m afraid of becoming so enlightened that
no one can understand what I see anymore
I want to write a story
because sometimes
I’m afraid of what the world looks like
without storytellers
