He built me a palace

In the moonlight, he laid down 
brick by brick, the foundations
for a palace.

The palace, he then built 
and surprised me with its beauty,
telling me it was mine for the keeping.

He let me stay 
in the palace for days
enjoying the lavish lifestyle.

He let me think
I’d enjoy my palace more
without him.

He let me watch him
Walk away
While I stayed within the walls
and the barriers
I let him build.
