Drumming against my ribs, my heart beats, awaiting Your
Emanent scalpel, to pierce through this taut
Skin. You have gone too far into the
Pain, and now I weep, face twisted awfully around the sight
Of Your fingers reaching to
Tease away the falling flesh,
Amid my tears, and Your contented expression.
- Columbine is a Hellenic Revivalist bride of the Olympian Prince, Apollon. Together with Him, she rules her Court with grace and love. As a Sovereign Queen immersed within the needs of her local area, her only wish is to serve her Gods, Land and Dead to their satisfaction.
"Rule in love, for wealth may buy your kingdom, but it will not buy the loyalty of your subjects. And, while fear is potent and may induce a strained kind of loyalty, it is too costly and unsound to maintain. Love, only, is more valued than wealth. Love, only, is more practical than fear."
