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
told me to 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
