Castles in the air

Don't crush my castles in the air.
The castles I've build
with my own illusions,
from butterfly wings and
fluffy white clouds
and crystal prism's
reflecting the colours of the rainbow.

I've planted rose gardens
around my castles in the air,
surrounded with sugar coated
white picket fences.
And there in the middle of
my picture perfect
castles in the air,
yours and mine rocking chair,
You crushed my castles in the air
