The Poison

An allegory of a queen who’s mind is poisoned against her lover by those jealous of his possible influence.
The poison swirled
inside her head
she hardly knew
she’d soon be dead
as thoughts which entered
and swirled around
soon killed the love
that she had found

 

It was “concern”
or so they said
these things they whispered
inside her head
but lies were told
again, again
they feared the love
she’d found

 

And poison works
as poison grows
the beating heart
is slowly slows
until there’s not
a thing to see
the poison works
so silently

 

And all the love
the deepening bliss
she sent away
without a kiss
and never did she ever say
why he was sent
so far
away

 

And all her court
did gather round
and swore that they were
honor bound
to tell the truth
and keep her safe
but lied instead
to their
disgrace

 

And assured her this
and every day
t’was better off
with him
away
while each one watched
their poison grow
as all her joy
began to go

 

And now she walks
the path alone
no one to kiss
no one to hold
and dreams the dream
that never was
as mist
it gathers
round
