Nighttime Inspirations 9

A/N: Originally published on December 1st, 2013 on A Purple Panda. – Alixa


Castle of cards
Standing so tall
At the top of the world
You’ll never fall
Gust of wind
Brings you back to earth

Castle of sand
Small but solid
A wave to erase
All of your hard work
Not a single trace
Nothing is left

Castle of glass
Shining so bright, eternal
The moonlight turns you
Into sparkling diamonds
A storm shatters it
Now nothing but shards

Castle of wood
Sturdy and strong
Protected from the night
A single spark
Leaves only ashes
Blown in the wind

Castle of stone
Impenetrable defences
Safer than ever
No need to run anymore
Fated earthquake
Made it my tomb
