of thrones



we reign and roam
in intricate stone
-faced poker skies.

you raise; i’ll fold
my hands and praise
the storms that rise.

we deal and dwell
in joy that’s spelled
in sorrow’s songs.

you show; i’ll tell
the world to play,
before tomorrow’s gone.

    I love how this line shifts the power and flips the script with a few words and a line break. Makes me think ‘of thrones’ in a whole grander sense.
