Remember that fairy tale we read together?
The prince and princess wearing crowns stellar
studded with the rarest of gems!
I got similar ones made by my jeweler.
But he said he’d have to use artificial colored stones
And you remember we read about the lamp of glittery stone
which emitted the light of love?
I tried finding it in every nook but managed just an ordinary one
They sold it saying “it has the light of heaven above”
I bought it with the explanation.
And how could I forget those fruits the prince plucked from the tree of wishes
each wish gifted to the princess.
I just bought a few fruits from the market of fruit and fishes
One of them was even rotten.
Does that mean our wishes are rotting out?
I have tried to get most of the things we read about in that fairy tale.
I tried to make that fairy tale a reality
But I couldn’t.
So I am giving up the real and going back to where we started.
No compromises anymore,
Hope you find me in the next fairy tale.
