I’m Not The Type To Tell An Urban Fairytale by Emily Taylor

inspired by the Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen’s work, specifically the music video for Your Type

nothing ever looks like the start of a story
no one ever really looks like a lost princess

not when her sink is still splattered with hair dye
from the last time she needed to start over

she knows it’s not romantic to be alone
curled in on herself at a bus stop at midnight

waiting, because all she ever does is wait
and stepping on stage isn’t automatically magic

neon lights aren’t bright enough to turn her new and wonderful
instead our cinderella is dressed in stars and bowie boots

singing her love goodbye
making time
just making time


Emily Taylor currently has more than 60 tabs open.
