King Blood

I am a Queen
My heritage and linage go deep like roots
I come from King Blood,
So I deserve royalty amongst

The King for me will love me
Like the rarest blue diamond
Tender jewel, glistening, gold
His beautiful eyes mesmerize

Pearls perfectly formed
His lips are tender and sweet
Amber topaz protect his soul
Skin, caramel, chocolate brown

Burnt gold, smooth and bright
My King’s loins begin and end
Where the Nile and Euphrates meet
A love like ours is divine

When he holds me tight in his sculpted arms
Our souls reach boundaries
That cannot be confined
To time, space or words

Diamonds, Rubies and Sapphires
Though jewels of a rare find
Their value do not compare
To the love of our kind
