Beauty and the Beast - Something There [HD]

And they lived happily ever after…

Yes, I believed it happens that way

Just like in the fairy tales granny used to tell every night

A prince charming in shining armor

Love at first night and the happy endings.

I believed in Cinderella and in Snow-White

In the prince who resurrects the sleeping beauty

In the kiss that transforms the frog into the handsome prince

And in the pure love that transformed the beast.

Yes, I believed in it all-

The beauty and magic of love!

But those were fairy tales

And fairies don’t exist!

Happily ever after is a mirage

And true love is nothing but a poet’s dream.

Yes, nothing but a figment of imagination

Just like the prince on white horse from the far-off lands.

Betrayals and lies, bitterness and scars

Forgotten are the promises of the moon and the stars

Jolted out of reverie, reality stares in face

And life is now a series of endless compromises.

      True, what you have told

      but hope is the word to behold.

      Happiness ending with sadness is half of the wave,

      And, waves are never still.

      To be extrovert,

      is the way out.

      you are right, Hari...despair is not the way. but the problem is that most of us grew up on fairy tales and spent our teenage years devouring mills and boon romances. this has set unrealistic expectations about love and this is mainly the reason for despair.

      We are an imaginative lot,

      When we fall flat,

      We realize it,

      and.

      Poets are born out of it.

      You are right. The boys never pay any heed to these fairy tales, even in their early childhood. They will never ever touch a Mills & Boons series. They don't have any ambition in their mind to become a "Prince Charming" for the not-so-charming "princesses".

      Because the Nature has blessed them with brains, and the society has cursed "US" with expectations.

      That is true, by nature,

      Guys are from mars, a dry land

      Gals are from venus, a shining land.

      But the shining land is of no use, unless a dry member comes from the dry land and "rescues" the "self obsessed" " unnecessarily swampy and shining" species.

      it is an amazing parable,

      Generations have passed, understanding this fable.

      Yeah, that is because the Venus People aren't ready to accept this simple fact. They will stand in front of the mirror for ages but never reach to this self-realization.

      Venus people are overly sensitive lot and Mars people are logical & practical. This is where all the confusion begins!

      Very true. This life is not a fairy tale, but it's like an adventurous story.

      Good concluding lines" And life is now a series of endless compromises".

      @newjerusalem thank you! I feel that our unrealistic expectations are the major cause of heartbreaks.
