My desire for you had to go,
As you dropped me cold as snow.
My passion for you had chilled,
As you locked me out with the walls you build.
My dreams of you shattered all night,
As you catapulted my burning heart into flight.
My hopes of you went up in smoke,
As you insist on digging a deeper moat.
My trust in you had gone in disbelief,
As your next quest proved you do deceive.
My taste for you has certainly soured,
As you chased me up to your lofty towers.
My teardrops wash away the sands,
As you know I’m no longer in your plans.
Rain will fall and tides subside,
As you know by now, this is ‘Goodbye’.
Don’t turn around just to shrug and sigh,
As you know you won’t get another try.
Enough of your selfish lullaby,
Building your castle in the sky.
