We built a home out of a paper castle.
It was grand on the outside and the neighbors envied our lot.
They marveled at the majestic and intricate design.
It was a perfect home for a fairy tale ending.
But they did not know the structure was about to cave in.
For the walls we have built were all flimsy and delicate.
And on the inside, neither a heart nor a home could fit.
Only a lonely and sulky queen, and a distant and cold-hearted king.
Alas, the rain finally came falling.
Our beloved paper castle collapsed no faster than a castle made of sand.
