My Kingdom

The kingdom was cold and the kingdom was crumbled.

My fingertips brushed what was left of the walls,

Leaving crimson dust on the tips of my fingers,

The blood from the bricks of my broken city.

And I walk to my rest.

As bloodied suns set wistfully on broad horizons,

Wishing one more time for one more set of eyes

To watch the burn and watch the cease,

And to cry when the light hits their smiles.

And I watch and I weep.

To glare at the tangled vines constricting me and

My city is the only freedom I have left.

I’ll scream to the stars for the moon is long gone

And all I’ll ever have now is my bricks and their blood.

And I run ‘til I can’t run anymore.

The cape across my shoulders snakes behind me

Hissing, echoing my choked up breathing

Winds are rushing letting me feel light

From the slowly rising horizon

And then I let myself fall and I let myself down.

Or can I halt my feet and turn around?

My kingdom faces me with bravery,

Lungs churning air and coughing smoke

She breathes one more time and so she knows

And now so I know.

The cape across my shoulders swirls at my feet.

And I take one step back

And I take one step forward

And I run

And I’ll keep running

‘til my city is all gone.

About pasameerday

I haven't got a lot of time to keep you interested, so I'll be quick. I'm a writer from the UK, primarily of fantasy and sci-fi short stories, and occasionally of strange, nonsensical poetry. I like cats, the Sims, and pizza, and I go to sleep to the sound of a keyboard. I've been writing for my entire life; to be honest, I don't think I could ever bring myself to stop. I have a feeling I'm losing you, so I'll bring this to an end before you slowly start to back up, hoping I'll stop talking long enough for you to make a quick getaway. Wait... Where are you going? Hey! Wait! ... Stop!!
