How to Add a Text Paragraph in PDF with JAVA REST API

Hi,
I need guidance with regards to adding a paragraph in my PDF. So far i am doing something like this:

    Page page = doc.getPages().getList().get(1);
    Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph();
    
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle();
   
    rect.setLLX(250.0);
    rect.setLLY(718.0);
    rect.setURX(560.0);
    rect.setURY(770.0);

    paragraph.setSubsequentLinesIndent(0.0);
    paragraph.setRectangle(rect);
    paragraph.setHorizontalAlignment(TextHorizontalAlignment.LEFT);
    paragraph.setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment.BOTTOM);
    paragraph.setWrapMode(WrapMode.BYWORDS);

   
    TextState textState = new TextState();
    textState.setFontSize(16.0);
   
    Segment segment = new Segment();
    segment.setValue(desc);
    segment.setTextState(textState);

    List<TextLine> lines = new ArrayList<>();
    TextLine line = new TextLine();
    line.addSegmentsItem(segment);
    lines.add(line);
    paragraph.setLines(lines);

For Aspose.pdf (not cloud based API) we used to add a textbuilder and then append the paragraph to the textbuilder. However, i can’t find the same functionality on pdf-cloud. Kindly help how i can achieve to make a paragraph
