cities burned

i’m unsure
how to carry you
inside me
for the rest of my life

most cherished pearl

how am i to love honestly
be grateful for a bed
or accept the stars in the sky

i have gladly given away kingdoms for you

my carriage dismantled
horses taken to market
cities burned

because he knew
i love you

helen of troy
on my balcony
causing war

did you notice
when we’re together
our eyes become the same color
