Hues of Carmine

Beguiled by his charms

I stood there dreaming

Feet on the mustard farms

I jolted screaming

.

A bite on my foot

Was enough to convey

The wiles in front of the truth

Felt higher in front of a krait

.

To those who wonder

Behold my tale

A decision turned blunder

 By a woman, so frail.

.

A man so charming

Never seen in the realm

I mistook him for a king

Of my life, he took the helm.

.

Then began the days

Of misery, murk and gloom

He and his mistress found ways,

to make my life doom.

.

 Back to the present

My thoughts subside

A mind filled with resent

Shattered from inside.

.

Ambushed by the ones I trusted

The universe taught me a lesson

For the people whom I adjusted,

were the ones convicted of treason.

.

Years passed, I survived

The guilt of believing

Now at a position so high

Above than that of a king

.

Destiny gave me a final chance

To prove my worth to the world

The universe is a greedy trance

The hurdles just swirled

.

Taking a step back

I reminisced my treacherous past

The time to divert the flak

To the people who look aghast.

.

With a voice now I stand

The world at my feet

An empire now to expand

Cheers permeate the street.

.

A queen now reigns

Greeting her people as her own

The once bounded by chains

Has now ascended the throne.

.

A woman can and will

Forge ahead in fields she desire

Sometimes sway sometimes still

Sometimes like a raging fire.
