Tearing down the Taj Mahal

The disappointment was deafening.
The toil of 20 burdened years
Turned sour over bitter
There is no such thing as luck
There is however tragedy.
To beat your brow and Solve
endless puzzles over enigmas
And still life's tragedy finds you.
The house of love is torn down
Like the Tower of Babel
And we try and build it up again
Toiled Brick over mortar
Only to slide further into rubble.
The remnants of sanity cling Locked on false hope
Dragged around from one plea bargain to the next
This pseudo Taj Mahal will finish me.
Such a an ordinary love token
For an extraordinary love,
survived of unimaginable burdens
Turned Trials over torment
Nothing to gain from this house of love
But more pain in restitution, let it be
lets dwell in each others hearts instead
Where we speak the same language
And are happy to just be neighbours.

It can be three things, or any other thing to anyone, for me it's the dramas. Of building a dream home that feels more like compromise home, which is also difficult because my heart is in a few places...

So far

across the line
This story pained with time
Such distance to the wandering eyes
So close, yet still too far across the line

Reaching for a dream
Giving in without holding
A touch only in memory
So distant from this waking dream

...you really captured the essence. I would applaud, but I fear there is not enough applause for the awesome depicted in this one.
