Crumbling Castle

Crumbling castle of mixed up dreams,

maybe I wanted too many things?

The cracked tiles, broken staircase, dark

hallways that echo with chaos, they say –

It was here for you, but not enough.

Gardens overgrown, out of control,

Like my spinning mind that says, it

crumbled beneath you.  You didn’t do

enough, be enough, to make this castle

shine.  No, you stared out the window and

cried, as bit by bit fell with your tears.

And you didn’t care, really, because

it had all crumbled long ago.
