Prince of Spike
Is it true
you turn metal
with your hands?
I'm still learning
as I try to make
a more malleable man.
I'm hoping to earn me
a small portion of your heartland.
But you're rigid;
aren't like others
with bright colors,
and through the slit
of a window
I can see
that you're in there.
This feels almost like
A Medieval war.
I doubt that you've been
this vulnerable before.
Like a hundred knights
and its door.
You can try
to stave me off.
All that becomes is
I'll patiently wait
until you feel
I'm not one for crushing egos
And leaving love slain.
I'm not one to hold your hand
let our clasp break.
Your pretty blue eyes
are like ice.
I'll fashion my armor,
you push me away,
I'll dig in my heels,
and when you see that I'll stay,
you'll let me in
I'll find a castle
end up razed,
the Prince of Spike,
I'm an adorable
and I'm itching
for a love fight.
