So this was part of hugs_and_kisses's challenge. She asked me to write a poem using the words fairy, spinning, and jet. She also asked I write the poem based on the Bowling for Soup song "1985" from the "woman/girl's" point of view. Not my best work, but it's sufficient.

*note* the song itself is quite explicit so even though I tried to tone down the content, it does refer to some adult content

Now I'm sitting here screaming
Where did my time go to be an actrss?
I was going to be on the big screen TV.
But now I hate the world keeps spinning.

Thinking back on all those days
The date where we saw "Breakfast Club"
Telling everyone I was gonna be a star
and nothing could stand in my way.

But here comes the day I turn 24.
I went to sleep in one world
and woke up to lots of regrets.
As I learned I couldn't dream anymore.

As I drive around in this old car,
I laugh as I looked forward to flying
in a private jet with Blondie and U2
and have fun with every rock star.

It's been years since my dreams flew away
I now have babies past the fairy phase
now saying the same things as I did saying
they'd follow their dreams all the way.
