House of Dreams
My house made of dreams could not stand against reality
it shook late at night when the passing storm took hold,
it rocked and it swayed when the walls started to fold
and it collapsed all around me claiming one fatality.
My house made of dreams could not stand against despair
the foundation grew weak with the pain and the tears,
it rocked and it swayed when confronted with my fears
and could not keep me safe when was left in disrepair.
My house made of dreams could not stand against harshness
with broken wishes and stories within the crumbled walls
and ghosts from my past left walking through the halls,
as it rocked and it swayed while leaving me in the darkness.
