Far From A Fairy Tale

You dream us
A beautiful life
Worthy of  fairy tale status
You, a humble King
I... your Queen

But once alone
You- I
In our lonely,cold castle
Nothing's farther from
Reality

  2. Ah, I think there are a lot of lives like this....from the outside we only see the 'castle,' but inside the castle there is an empty shell!

  3. Oh this one does have a hard ending. So sad when the castle is but a shell.

  5. Some relationships are sadly like that, seeming perfectly happy on the outside, but empty and disconnected on the inside ... you captured this feeling well.
