The captain


I’ve brought my ship to a wreck

my nation to a fall

with my harshness

I’ve failed my kin and my foe

Only meeting the little faerie

the same night as I wore that disguise

allowed me to slowly redeem myself

of past wrongs I committed

of the hate that still burnt in my wound

slowly as my faerie caressed my face in secret

and whispered words of love to my heart
