The Beast may have mellowed with age and his spots now hidden by grey,
but his wild nature doesn’t change and spots though hidden remain.

The Prince of Toads is a true Prince indeed,
but the reality is, still a toad he remains.

The Prince still has his castle tis true.
But the would be Queen doesn’t seem to see,
That the shining castle by the side of the sea
Has always and only been made of sand.

I love this! The imagery and the very thought behind it are both enchanting and thought-provoking at the same time.

Well if she refuses to see, then she never will until he moves on to someone else.
I can see him chuckling at these and then laughing because she's sitting with that blank "I don't get it" look.
Wanting to believe you've found prince charming is one thing, being a blind fool about it is a bit too much. Besides, the only reason the fairy tale princes were perfect was because they were written that way- and there's a reason it's called fiction! :-)

Well it's her own fault. And with anyone (male or female) who seems to be that determined to be a free spirit, the more you try to hold them, the faster they move away. Sounds like tying him down would be as efffective as trying to tie our cousin down to just one person... it's just not physically possible!

I wonder how many marriages would have been saved if the originals had been left alone and people hadn't been blinded by the "happily ever after" versions that say everything should be love at first sight, perfect ending, etc. It sets a standard that can't possibly exist.
