The Castle of Hope

image

You’d cry me a river
I’d bring out a boat
As every drop simmered
Equating a moat

Your fortress unfortified
In the Castle of Hope
Emotionally mortified
They’d scratch at your throat

The last of your tears
Formed a heart on your face
Amassed over years
Through a loss of your faith

And as the tears stopped
I saw the heart break
And the final tear drop
Tore my own heart away
