faux snow white

knock-off snow white
vain and full of lies
don’t be so hasty
in calling me
the apple to your eye
because I am not the type
who needs you to survive

and I will always love
the idea of you
more than I love you
but if you say it first
I will always reply with
“I love you too”
(that’s what the mockingbirds
said I should do)

so mirror mirror
on the wall
who’s the most heartless
of them all?

but don’t despair
if you’re just looking for a good story
I can promise you this:
I may be a bad apple
but the first bite
will ooze a thick sticky happiness
that chokes and leaves you breathless
it’s a perfect nightmare
that a kiss cannot awaken you from
