The Blue Fairy's Lament

To sense the longing for unity that brought you into being.
To wish on the stars for something you don't yet understand.
To try and fail to be good.
To feel the gaze of the one who sees your lies plain on your face.
To misplace your trust.
To curl on the floor around your broken heart.
To find another's heart in pieces in your hand.
To wish and sleep and wake and try and fail again to be good.
To hurl yourself after any passing pleasure.
To chase the next and the next and the next big thing.
To drown in your thrashing confusion.
To stare into the darkness of your isolation.
To love.
To try.
To fail.
To dream good dreams.
To be human.
