My Broken Castle
My broken castle
I invited you into my heart and soul.
A little castle I had built to shield myself from people.
I trusted you with knowledge of my secret entrance to my home.
Your light pierced through each room and brought warmth
But you changed a storm and brought destruction
Then you upped and left everything upside down
You picked yourself up like the sunrise and walked into the horizon
I witnessed your love as it touched the faraway mountain
It sunk in like the setting of a winter’s sun.
Beautiful beyond measure but out of reach.
I am wishing for you not to come back.
With my heart dangling like a necklace because you ripped it out of my chest.
Like a bucket reaching the bottoms of a well just for you to get your cup.
And yes you sipped on my tears
And hung my heart which you had ripped apart;
Left it in the open for the sunset vulture to feast upon.
Now I will salvage what remains of my castle.
I will go off to no man’s land and rebuild my castle.
And I will shut the world out and let in no soul.
Not even a pinch of light shall I let in for fear that my hurt be exposed
You ripped me naked and left me in the open
I will shelter myself and be in my own little fortress.
Safe from mankind, the greatest monster to ever roam earth.
