I built my house of dreams,
on the turbulent sea.
I worked on it for so long, 
trusting that it was safe and strong.

Li'l did I know it was a 
house of cards. 
Laid on the foundation of uncertainty,
why did I ever expect harmony. 

I started living in my
house of cards. 
Caught in it forever, 
dangling between goodbye and happily ever after.

Not meant for gambling, was this
house of cards.
But still I decided to play,
Knowing what all I have to pay. 

Blown away, sank and fell, my 
house of cards.
Trying to win a loosing game,
I stand today, lost and with no aim. 

My inspiration for this one!
