You Swore! You Promised!
Spittle covers my dejected face
as I fall to my knees.
Tattered rags and dirt covered feet
attest to how far I have come.
I watch the disdain play a game
trying to hide and yet failing.
I watch those of your court pity me
but there is nothing I can do.
You swore that you would protect me!
You promised that you would love me!
And yet here I am, abased on the floor.
I hear the clack of heels as you walk away,
I hear the murmur of voices in my head,
in a flash with a blade of steel
I have ended your life.
