She’ll say it’s too late

and you’ll half-believe her
and the other half

will keep wondering
while she
keeps wandering

and you’ll follow her

not quite
sure why

Like she had been
dropping crumbs
behind her

for you to

as the story goes

she was headed to
a house of sweets

and you thought
you were meant
to save her
from the witch

you didn’t know

she wanted
to get burned
all along

and this
wasn’t the
same story
at all.
