The Queen and Her Court


She's the queen of her court,

Her kindness will never come short,

With her hair like a halo,

And her eyes twin volcanos,


She's a star shining so bright,

Her smile pure and white,

She commands the room like a storm the sky,

And you will never see her cry,


But you never look behind the curtain,

Because everyone thinks she's certain,

While she smiles deep in her eyes there is doubt,

As she watches her life play out,


She continues to wear her mask,

While each day she dreads the task,

At night in the moonlight her tears shine,

The hope of a new life her only lifeline.

    Thank you Spitfire.

    What a beautiful poem.

    It must be difficult being royalty having to bear yourself with great dignity before your subjects at all times even when you are hurting.

    Keep writing
