The Queen and her Castle (25/9/14)

For when your body wants one thing and your mind and heart want another. Quick write.

You wanted to invade.
Again and again, you asked for invitation
And the queen declined and built up my walls.
You attacked them, made me tremble
With your words, the way you made me quake.
Your soldiers kept on but I stood fast
Impenetrable fortress, a diamond palace.
You called her a snow queen
Who had a castle hot, that burned to touch
But had a heart of winter stone.

It took months before you tired.
Drew your forces back and retreated.
She’d won this war, and she fell to her knees
As you disappeared into the sunset
Taking your delicate words with you.
She loved herself, then.

But years dragged on, she longed for battle
And the way your lips felt against her earlobe
When she’d let you in then driven you out.
She ignored my desperate protests,
My plea to let you stay and stoke my fire.
She never gave in, she never gave up
And she never let you conquer her.

And then, a small reminder.
A reminder of what it felt like
To have your hands pound against my solid doors
To have you beg for entry to my body
My castle, my land, my fortress
To hear your soft words on the wind.
My body thought you were a sweet thing,
The queen knew you were a viper.

But yet I crave your poison.
I wish you’d tear down my walls
And smash my drawbridge
And slay my guardsmen,
But you won’t need to.
My wall is down, my moat is bridged
And my guardsmen died long ago.

Defences are down. The queen is out.
Now, won’t you take her treasure?
