castles in heaven
Photo by Cederic Vandenberghe on Unsplash
i used to build my dreams around you
like castles around the both of us.
brick by brick breaking my back,
for a future that looked like heaven,
until i came to realize i built them all alone.
not once, did you sincerely break down your walls,
yet all the cracks in mine let my heart seep through.
i allowed the illusion of me and you,
to consume the world the way i knew it.
you became like a ghost,
who haunted my thoughts, 'till i saw nothing else.
in the blind rage those castles burned,
like ashes to the ground.
from them, alone i rose.
with walls of my own.
walls which shall never break down
in the presence of you
