Leading Up to the New Book – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Glass Castles

I’m gearing up for the next release in my series of poetry by doing another 30 in 30. If you haven’t, check out the first installment, The Voices In My Head, on Amazon. The next installment will be out on October 26th, my birthday!

Glass Castles

I have created an empire
Wrought prosperity
With mine own hands

I have built wonders
The envy
Of the world around me

Yet that empire is hollow
Reverberating with callous laughter

Those wonders are decaying
Chipped away slowly by the wind

The kingdom is burning
But you would not know it
Looking at its splendor

Spires stretching to the heavens
Ambition made real
Dreams become stone

Not a weary soul in sight
At least that can be seen
With the human eye

I am become king!
I am become emperor!

Behold my work
Know that I sit atop the throne
Where none can hope to reach
