Paper Castle

We built a home out of a paper castle;ย Grand on the outside and the neighbors envied our lot.
People marveled at its majesty and intricacy;
It was a perfect home for a fairy tale ending, they told themselves.

Little did they know it was all about to cave in;
For the walls we have built were flimsy and has been made weak with treachery.
On the inside, neither a heart nor a home could fit;
Only a lonely and sulky queen, and a distant and cold-hearted king.

The rain finally came;
A castle made of sand would collapse no faster than our beloved paper castle.
