Our Kingdom

Our Kingdom

You call yourself the Prince of Darkness,
and possess no emotions for the world to see.
A hard life you’ve lived, never knowing how
much better and brighter life can be.
Let me bring you into the light and show you love.
Let me teach you what it is to feel, to live, to be happy and content.
For that’s what I feel when in your arms,
Yet I feel your coldness and depression too.
How to make you warm again, will I ever know?

You call me the Princeses of Light
Sweet, caring, warm, and bright.
Join me in my kingdom then
In this place you glorify.
Join this woman whom you bow to and place upon a pedestal.
For I, in all of my greatness am just as alone as you.
I love you, I do and often wonder if you’ll love me too.
How to make you warm again, will I ever know?

So scared, yet so eager are you, to learn and to feel.
But if you try too hard, and take too much in you will find
That this thing called love, no matter how many wonderful things are
Possessed within, is the very thing that will destroy you in the end.
Heed my warning, and take it slow.
For I see you colors changing from dark to light.
I see you smile as you accept my hand and walk with me
toward our kingdom, our future.

Dedicated, written about, for, and to Brandon Jones.

Our Kingdom part 2, written by Brandon Jones in response to Our Kingdom part 1.

Pairs of Lives

Do you dream of a time in darkness lost?
A place where your heart still resides
Are you afraid of what your love may cost?
Do you fear life will toss you aside?
Those who care never stay in your life.
No matter how hard you try, your heart just wants to die.
And those tears they just fall from from your eyes.

Does your soul scream at you, blaming you for its pain?
Does it step into your brain?
Are your regrets driving you insane?
Is your life falling apart at the seams?
The more you say the less you know what you mean.

Life is a terrible dream.
It tears at you, it pulls all your strings.
It’s never nice, it’s always mean.
But if you look ahead you will always see me.
Take my hand and enter the light, My Princess.
