A Devastated King

Life was good, just like food.
In the wood, I was in a good mood.
My body was fully cool like water in a pool

I was feeling in my divine kingdom.
Living an evocative and peaceful expedition.
I felt in paradise, and never dreamt dying alive.

Today, your mark in my heart has remained so smart.
Together, you used to force not to cause a faulter;
As smiles were abundant on your ruby lips.

As I smelt your aisles’ sweat, I died fell in emotion;
Both my ears were deafened by blind adventure.
Sometimes, I dream people face challenges.

Away from you, now the kingdom you expand.
Done with one King, you invite his princes,
An Emperor passing closer, you demand.

At night, I am awake thinking of the kingdom
Shattered and mishandled by unknown roitelets 
The little tree is thornless, but it grows to produce some.
