Once long ago

Queens and kings

Inhabited the space

Between my walls

Together they’d host

Lavish banquets

Cheer filled the halls

And people danced

Without a care

People would stop by

To admire and

Take my picture


By the grandeur

Of such a notable castle

But darkness has moved in

And now I’m just a hollow

Abandoned old building

Living the

Nightmare of silence

Nature claiming

My land as their own

A landmark of unease

Inspiring ghost tales

Among the young and old

My past forgotten

Only to be remembered

In the pages of history
