The Builder...

Im a builder
of many things
stories and dreams
Imaginary things


I build a castle
around my mind
To defend my thoughts
To defend what is mine


Surrounded my heart
with great big walls
To keep it safe
when wartime calls


Near 21 years
I've defended this land
And tended to my walls
With gentle hands


Countless times
Have I been under siege
But never before
have my walls been breached


My castle is in ruins
My walls turned into dust
The enemy took it all
My hate, my love, my trust


I'm left standing here naked
With no sense of place or time
Defenceless without sword and armor
Without walls to hide behind.
