the girl i was

i came here to find the girl i was before,
when fairytales were about straight girls,
hidden stories of mystical transformations,
like when girls come together magic happens,
like discovering the places where you are most ticklish,
songs of balmy summer nights, more than just pretty faces,
more than just lists of nouns, more than just a world filled
with colour and beauty, discovering you can fly like a bird,
discovering her moods by flickering candlelight
playing madly and sleeping little, outside the darkness,
inside her fingers are wrapped in my hair, spellbound,
my body curled into a tight ball, beaming like sunshine
