Remember that fairy tale we read together?
The prince and princess wearing crowns studded
With rarest of gems!
I got the similar ones made from my jeweler.
But he says he’ll have to replace the gems with artificial colored stones
And you remember we read about the lamp they had that
Emitted the light of love?
I tried finding it in each mall but managed to find just an ordinary one
They sold it saying “The soothing light will make you fall in love”
I bought it with the explanation.
And how could I forget those fruits the prince plucked from the tree of wishes
He gifted each wish to the princess.
There are not many fruit trees left in my city. I just bought a few fruits from the fruit seller. One of them was even rotten.
Does that mean our wishes are rotting out? Maybe!
I managed 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
This time I can’t compromise!
So I am giving up the real and going back to where we started.
No compromises anymore.
Hope you read me in the next fairy tale.
