In The Kingdom of One

In the kingdom of one,

I was enslaved as my own serf.

I didn’t even recognize myself

When you found me.

Without warning,

You were thrust upon my world,

And everything about me was gone.

I felt nothing but an ache for your soul.

You grooved amongst my universe,

And I was lit from within

By all that valor and chivalry

Streaming from the land of the knights

So long ago.

All our jousting tore through my rusted armor,

And I was naked and set free

Because I had you


The real me.
