Stealing a glance at his Queen

Stealing a glance at his Queen

If only you, my perfect Queen

Will see one such as me

My worthless self can ne'er compare

To your unmatched beauty


But what is this, is this a dream

I see you walk to me?

“My dear, they say you worship me”

“Oh yes my Queen I do!”


“If your love is true my dear,

Tell me if it's true.

What would you do for me my dear,

Whatever would you do”


“I would give my life for you

Anything you please.

I only want your love my dear

What should I do, my queen?”


“Carry my books to my house

If it is not wrong,

It proves real strength to me

If you are truly strong”


So with books grasped in his hand

Handed by his Queen

No protest did he once commend

As helping he is keen


“If your love is true my dear,

Tell me if it's true.

What would you do for me my dear,

Whatever would you do”


“I would give my life for you

Anything you please.

I only want your love my dear

What should I do, my queen?”


“Paint my nails a crimson red

They compliment my eyes

I know you wouldn’t dare refuse

Unless your love is lies?”


Without another word he went

To shine her fingers red.

Though much mistakes he did make

It’s what his queen had said.


“If your love is true my dear,

Tell me if it's true.

What would you do for me my dear,

Whatever would you do”


“I would give my life for you

Anything you please.

I only want your love my dear

What should I do, my queen?”


“Carve my name into your chest

That would be enough,

It proves your loyalty to me

If you are truly tough”


So with knife grasped in his hand

Handed by his Queen

No screams came as he did for her

What a gruesome scene!


Darkness danced within his eyes;

Only focus was his queen

Slowly, slowly, does he dies

“That makes it all sixteen!” (HAHAHA)


For those wondering,

The number sixteen is here because it is a kill count
