Pearls

He draped her in a crown of mermaid tears,

the mystical gems of the sea-

Poseidon’s prized pearls…

And yet, the rarest jewel she owned

was the one she never allowed him to see…

the one she kept nestled beneath her ivory bones…

the one that craved the soft warmth of his fingertips,

but shied away from his gentle glow

that threatened to expose all the secrets 

she had worked so hard to keep locked away…

for even a princess can find herself shackled

by deranged fears of the soul.
