It seems as though the tide has turned,
Somehow I must stand.
While my dreams of
"love and castles",
Are again reduced to sand.

Just bits of time my hands can't hold,
To spite how hard I try.
Dreams my heart will never know,
As I fight this urge to cry.

Where once was love and admiration,
Now it's senseless fights.
When hateful words tear our world apart,
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right.

I just wish that I'd been stronger,
And let go of my pride.
It may have changed everything enough,
Without the need to say good-bye.

I realize now as I look back..
At all the things that we called hassle's.
That none of them were worth leaving  behind,
All my dreams of "love and castles."
