Queen of Something.

I know! I know it all! Don’t bother now

My eyes betray me every time! Argh

Look at my hands,shaking till the digits double

Her beauty twists me in knots. I know!

Hey. I am no coward okay?

I just don’t know what to say

Saying I am fire might seem a bit insane

Saying my desires is what I’d call profane

My eyes ache from the sights I behold

She must be queen of Something

Something either pretty or bold

Her presence burns the cold in my mind

But hey,


Tell them I’ve had enough of games

Tell them I’ve seen. Tell them I know

This beauty tests me.

My mind is spinning

The gods are cheering

They love seeing a warrior beaten by beauty

My feet tremble when she exhales

This goddess!!!


Your beauty beats me,weakens me.


Who are you. What else could you be

Hear this. Listen to me

I am fire and I am not insane

I have no desire. I am master of the same

I am twisted in knots

My feet off the ground and mind spinning

I am twisted in silly knots

I am entertaining

The gods are cheering

Look at her. The Queen of Something.

Look at me. Aren’t I something

My world is swirling

I don’t know. Tell me what to do

Tell me what to say

Help me bake this clay.
