another frog story

The princess cannot see her own beauty.So she walked up to froggie as he sat around in quiet desperation. He felt rather than saw her approach.His heart leaped in such a manner as if it would jump out of his mouth,as if such a thing was possible.but then he was a stupid frog who did not know these things.All he wanted was to merely live his days out with a silent hope that she cared for him,and though even if it might be disappointing not to be a prince in reality,he felt being a frog would do,if only,if only…Oh his heart seemed to break.it in reality did not.but as one knows frogs do not know such things,they just feel.
she stood there looking directly at him,his hair which he never had on his gnarled skin,stood on edge,covering his quiet desperation.and then she spoke.a million bells chimed in a wild cacophony which stilled every existence.the mists lifted,the sun shone without reason.it seemed to smile,or was it a leer,he wondered.she said,i am not a princess,i am just a common wench and your love is misplaced.my heart longs for you,but i am not whom you seek.he almost fell off his toadstool.she just could not see how wrong she was.life had as he listened to her rapt broken her where she could no longer see the sun,feel the wind on her face,hear the song in her heart.he wished to tell her the truth.but how do you tell truth to someone who just wants to run from it.and after all she was a princess and they do not understand frogspeak.He could see that she was a diamond which had lived in her illusory sadness so long. She had become fat and bloated so that she could cut herself off from anyone who dared love her. she felt she did not deserve to be loved. what she saw when she looked at herself was the shrek’s princess. she did not realise that froggie had eyes that just bulged in an ugly manner and yet because of this glazed look could see her soul.he could see that under the dross she hid behind she was a princess. he could see the diamond shining brilliantly. she could only see the grime that covered it.
And yet,she had to open her heart to him.only that could make everything fall silently away.he loved her.he was broken.he knew she would rather be with some other.and yet he loved.hearts had no logic.
But………..
could she open her heart to him
with all their ugliness
could they create magic
he had no answers
he just knew love…………
