The Castle in my Heart

[Day 10 of the 31 Days of Poetry]

speak to me one last time and tell me 
there is no future, no hope for us, 
and i will tear down what i created 
for you; the castle in my heart.   

i will take down the ramparts, 
the towers, the very fortress 
where you ruled as queen, stone by stone, 
and i will wall off my heart from the 
light of hope with those very same stones. 
i want you to stay. to live in the castle 
forevermore and be mine, as i am yours. 

but if this is not what you want, 
then speak to me one last time. 
let me hear it in your voice 
and see it in your eyes, 

so that I may tear down the castle in my heart.
