Do Castles Grow On Trees?

Prince charming is a myth or perhaps long dead

For no longer do they rescue damsels, they end up hurting them instead.

But sometimes princesses still wish for a knight in armor

To climb the tower, profess undying love and be their savior.

Someone to vanquish the evil witch and break the curse

To be there for better or worse.

Still, no longer does a valiant prince come and the princess no longer waits

They are all forgotten in the past now as they forge their own fates.

They are all but whispers, carried by the breeze

Because castles no longer grow on trees.

The Idea

And on he went by telling me that he has fallen for me

I ask him why, what made him look my way

He says the mystery of me is a curious thing for him

So I say,

“You are not in love with me.

You are in love with the idea of me.

Of the what could be, what will be, what you and I could do,

Or would do. Of the idea that I could be it, the one, the lifetime.

You are in love with the future that has yet to unfold, which most girls might like

However,

That is not what I see.

I see the now, the boy who has no idea of what he truly wants.

The boy aimlessly moving along and bringing along whatever he is attracted to.

I see a boy lost in the fairytales hoping the princess would come and save him from loneliness.

That is not what I want.

I want a man who can stand on his own

Who agrees to disagree with me

Whose idea is like and unlike my own and respects it

A man who battles with me, for me, and will stand by me

A man who has sense and intelligence and emotion.

You may not see the difference”, I said to him.

“Because you are a boy who still has yet to grasp the idea of what it is to be a man.”

Fairytale

It starts with once upon a time

and ends with happily ever after

There’s something about these stories that

we can’t wait to see what happens on the next chapter

We read on and somehow we can’t help but hope

that happily ever after is not just in a book

I guess that’s why we love fairy tales

and that is why we get hooked

Girls dream of Prince Charming

and boys dream of saving the damsel in distress

Of slaying the dragon or defeating the evil witch

and later on climb the tower and share a kiss

There’s always singing and dancing

a lot of merriment

A fairy godmother, magic and love at first sight

and evil is vanquished, it’s evident

It’s nice to imagine, it’s nice to dream

of living in a world of fairy tale

Where true love wins and always reigns

and true love’s kiss never fails
