my kingdom for a chance

i am the drowned king
of a broken kingdom
filled with empty gestures
fevered dedications
painstakingly recreated
carved in marble epitaphs
for those long dead
but never ever forgotten

hail hail the drowned king
in his kingdom of darkness
sitting atop a throne
of mummified hearts
supping upon the salty tears
of lost hopes tossed aside
drifting into nothing
from where he was born
