Fairy tale

I would like to live in a fairy tale
so that I could always smell a gingerbread
to forget about the whole scent of reality.

I will build a castle for myself
One day I will meet a beautiful prince
That won’t be a trick
The world will be magical.

I want it to be real
so that I could touch it with my hand
and feel it with my own heart.
I want to believe it’s true
so that I could see it with my eyes
even then when it’s not dark.
