When I was about 15, I had a huge crush on a girl and wrote this for her. It seems so silly now, all these years later, but at the time I thought that I had really written something good. I never showed this to her (thank God) and she never knew about my crush on her.

What would happen if you and me
Together formed a lovers dynasty?
Well, I'd be the luckiest living king!
You, my Queen, would be ravishing.

Everything would be
Only dreams come true
For my love there is
Nothing better in lieu.

Since love would be
Our source of power,
Our might would surmount
The highest tower.

And together we'd reign
On our heart shaped thrones
And kiss until our lips
Wore straight to our bones!
