Only Pain will Please the Queen

by fyarlgiles



hands of Bronze and golden voice

she strikes a fear into your bones

a crown of velvet

red and mean

burns shadows

on both

sand and sea

a storm of vicious hell and fire

splits through all she deems unclean

goodbye, goodbye

to joy

to love

for only pain will please the queen
