Kingdoms

My life expands

In proportion to the

Courage taken to love.

Live with the self i

Kept at arms length

Not a different man

But one who has known

The worst and grown

From such defeats

I am a king with his kingdom

Held within himself

And you, my queen,

Have seen the crown

On my head

When i have felt only

It’s weight

A sword i am

And you its scabbard

House my terrible power

Within you

I would war for your chance

To rest safe within my domain

To play or sleep

I take pleasure in your care

As you take pleasure

In my dominion
