Submission

she is mythical
mystical
borne of fire and gemstones
she exudes energy and breathes life into me
and weaves a complete cipher around me

i worship her
pay tribute lovingly
lay trinkets and spoils of war
at her feet
and beg
for her love
to be bestowed

i am unworthy of her greatness
satisfied to be near her sphere
orbiting in her area
filing away every word spoken
for later rumination
and memorizing every glance
she deigns to give
