A Cinderella Ending......

I bet your waiting for me too tell you a tale of one missing shoe- A prince so much in love, after the night flew, one night of meeting one dazzling woman, yet she sprung at the first sight of dew- She left behind one glass slipper that left him in dreamy imagination that flew, into a hunt for the woman with a missing shoe
Until he finds his lover
He'll fawn over the fanciful visual dreamy damsel
And this conquest will guide him to the one he pastels
Yet he doesn't know her, but he knows he loves her
And, this is what sells 
Another love sick fairytale........

Who's maudlin now? 
No, wait let me give you a realistic tale, without rhyming... A man, and a woman falls in love..... Love at first sight ( well that's what they believe). After a year or two ( longer or shorter in some cases) These two destined lovers, are questioning their love.

An unsavory taste huh?..However, your not in hurry to purchase this Fairy-tale..... are you? 

Fables are imperative to our lifestyle. We grow up reading, and watching these lovely stories.. That makes us all believe in a Cinderella ending..

Romantic Ideas & Ideals 
Disney fairy-tales are enchanting. Makes you believe in something more powerful, makes you believe in yourself, what you can achieve. However, with fanciful fables, it becomes tiresome witnessing this ideal 'Love'.
Selling this Ideal, too the idealist .. everyone is still falling for it. Yet, with some many articles, & movies telling us what love is; instead of finding it in ourselves.. 
We have the media too teach us.

Whenever, plots are presented that are realistic to our own lives; these stories never seems too become notably, as the overly romanticized tales... Reading, and watching fairy-tales give many.. a vision of themselves ' if this can happen for her/him, this can happen for me'. 

Are we all waiting to be saved? waiting for our ideal instead of someone authentic.
A high expectation may lead too a very bad fall.. and leads you too the truth about love.....
Generations and various of cultures  connect through Fairy-tales. Romantic tales, Folk-tales.. Passed on to the next generation, & the next. 
Every tale is connected to truth.. 
Each author leaves a piece of themselves in each story. Either themselves, someone they know, or just pure imagination. 

Yet, each tale paints a picture of something we all want, and need to either make life more pleasurable, than what it truly is, or too teach us a lesson, or too open our minds to the wonderful world of imagination. 
Pure fantasy sometimes reflect back into life.. And, leads us on a path that can be destructive. Fantasy was a way to give many hope, now it has become ideal.. the life we all search for.

“I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl she's so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... 'Oh he's got a good job.' I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around.”-Blue Valentine Ryan Gosling 

Everyone has there own idea of what love is.. the Truth is never tasty, it has it's salty moments.  but are we willing to taste those moments.. To find our truth.
So What Happens When The Tall-Tale Ends?
Is the Honeymoon over yet? So what happens next? We all would love to believe they're love ended quite magical, & blissful. The angelic love, you were brought on to witness. 
Is it fantasy, or reality?
We all fall for a superficial ideal... But, when these relationship happens how does it truly end?
We will never know
The egocentric he loves me, loves me not... could end as easily as plucking petals from a flower. That will Lead us to words of Wisdom, &.....

Words Only Of L'amour 
There is no fairy-god mother, or rotten to save you in real life.. so are we truly looking for a fairy-tale or just a way to escape .. 
Although, I'm a true believer that these types of romances do exist.. Truly I believe they do. Albeit, it will not come true for many.. I have come to the conclusion that the public wants to hear a lie, not matter how dramatic it is.. And, that's why folk-tales & fairy-tales where created; to make us all believe in love, and a way to conquer l'amour, & save many from a desolated life.. 
Was this ideal a benefit, or a downfall? 
No matter how many times we justified that we believe in fairy-tales, or don't . It has effected our idea of love. 
There is never a true ending.. life is all about beginnings.
After all that's said, are you going lose your glass slipper, and test this ideal.. And, see if you have a Cinderella ending.
