Crownless King

Flee at once you crownless king

I sit and listen with pride and sing

In a palace you live with no offspring

A whirlpool of mass destruction you bring

The pillars that hold the roof above

Will crumble and fall on top of

When push came to shove

You showed you carried no love

I see your lips move but no words are spoken

The value and trust among now broken

You carry your pride on your chest like a token

No king you are just a jester that’s always joken

Like a plague you infect with manipulation

Leaving one to search for salvation

Sucking the life out for your hydration

Leaving one famished in starvation

Take hold of what you have now

For not long you will be taking a bow

Leaving asking you when and how

To yourself I wouldn’t talk a vow

We race away at the speed of light from these palaces of cold and bitter construct, where imitation life with no substance or meaning prevails.

In fact, what they build is like movie props that are all carboard and tape and paint. A place that "carried no love," and spoke only to the wind - lost in an instant.

But from the ashes, life is born, love is strong, and, sometimes, a little hope becomes endless fields of flowers to dash through hand in hand with dashing young poets... =)

"sun rays on a cloudy day".... I love that. I think I'll have some cards made with just that emblazoned on the front.

All the best, you (and deep emotions too), from your dashing young poet -- billy =)..

What a courageous person you are - you have, in my humble opinion definitely done the right thing. You will now go from strength to strength. Your words always capture such intense feelings. Voted up and pressing all your buttons Bella.
