He still chose Her.
What is so special about Her that He stays?
She is nothing,
but yet he sees perfection that was never there,
and like the Itsy-Bitsy Spider he keeps climbing up the spout
because each time he falls boosts his determination.
He is fighting a losing battle,
trying over and over to put Humpty Dumpty back together
when not even the Kings men could.
He is fights a war that He cannot win.
She is broken.
More than even She realizes.
She hides behind smiles and laughs but at midnight,
Her heart cries to the ear-shattering silence.
Why cry when no one can hear?
She believes he is a Prince,
and she is a beggar at worst.
He says she is a Queen,
and thinks himself a glorified peasant.
Neither believes they deserve a happy ending,
but both do.
They have been through too much,
and need each other, but she is closed.
Theirs is a tragic Fairy-Tale…
for when you don’t give something the belief it needs to survive,
it quits trying to live.
