Your Castle You'Re King - Poem by Karla Bell

As you bathed in my arms
You slept in my bed
I begged you to talk
You did... to another instead

I could feel you drifting
Kicking sand in my eyes
The tide was washing up
But still you lied

I grabbed every bouy
To keep me afloat
I wanted a life raft
A dinghy a boat

Your castle, you're king
A maiden I am not
A vagrant a vagabond
A tart a slut

Love on loan
Is a painful infection
A burning sensation
But dangerous addiction

I can't have now
What wasn't mine then
The divine revelation
Of women and men

A sick kind of sadiction
A remote torture room
A heart kicked to pieces
Anxiety looms

Courageous behaviour
Battered and worn
Life still waiting
Departed or torn

Poet's Notes about The Poem

at home broken and alone... but seeing the light turn to warmth.. because the darkest murkiest waters grows the strongest blooms. (lotus mantra)
