Empire Of Broken Dreams

Welcome to my empire of broken dreams
Which I have built from all the dreams I once had
Till I met you and everything went down the shit hole

I wanted to be with someone in this short life
You came and conquered me like if I was
Just a piece of land

My empire does not accept criminals like you
I want to kick you out but you use your
Psychological weapons against me

I see my empire falling to different types of colonies
You've taken me prisoner inside my own empire
If I die I will take you down to hell with me

Welcome to my empire of broken dreams
Which I have built from all the dreams I once had
If I could have read you I would not
Have let you in to my empire

The dream of growing up to be what I wanted to be
You entered my life in such a bad moment in my life
There was a civil war in my empire
Two forces, love and pain, fighting each other
You took advantage of that and conquered me

Goodbye from my empire of broken dreams
Which I have built from all the dreams I once had
Now someone else has taken your place
My empire is no longer of broken dreams
But of new ones I look forward to completing

You have been expelled from my empire
My empire of broken dreams
My empire of shattered dreams
My empire of triumphant dreams
Of triumphant dreams

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
