A Father's Apology
6raindog

There is a companion piece to this called A Daughter's Apology. If you have the time please read them back to back. The other poem is the exact same length.

Her feet didn’t reach the ground
 1
Only her gown spooled upon the floor
 2
Layers upon layers of gold surrounded her feet
 3
 
 
Small hands clutched the sword
 4
Fingernails dug into the silver
 5
And they did not scratch the weapon
 6
 
 
Pale lips opened and closed
 7
The air stole her noise
 8
Leaving behind nothing
 9
 
 
She held ice in her eyes
 10
Assessing the hall
 11
filled with white marble columns
 12
 
 
Fire burned on her head
 13
Along with solid gold and diamonds
 14
That almost fell down to her neck
 15
 
 
Her feet reach the ground as she stands
 16
And gold flows behind her
 17
 
 
Her hands grasp the sword as she walks
 18
It’s sliver gleaming in the light
 19
 
 
Her lips open and close as she talks
 20
And her voice holds the entire hall
 21
 
 
Her eyes hold ice as she watches
 22
They never yield emotion
 23
 
 
Her head burns tall as she stands
 24
And the golden crown holds firm
 25
 
 
She is the true savior
 26
For the people I failed
 27
 
 
And now I bow my head to her
 28
for the first and final time
 29
 
 
She raises the sword high and soon it will fall
 30
Yet I can’t help but feel sorry
 31
 
 
For the queen who is nothing she needs,
 32
and everything her people need
 33
