A Once Future King

A Once Future King

A Poem by astoundinglyattractive

I wrote this with Loki feels

I was born to be king.
But he stole me from my home
And raised me as his own.

I was sworn to be king.
But he beat me yet again
And I slipped into the abyss,

I was trained to be king.
But they ended my reign
and took me home again.

And what if I don't want to go back?
A once future king with nothing left?
What point is a home these days?
When I wish to hide from their searching gaze?

A once future king, they told me again
I just had to fight and I had to win-
and I did, I did! Alas, I did!
But the throne is something I will never get.

I felt it once, through treason and betrayal-
A once future king who was more than able.
And my scheme would have worked
had he not wished to be honest and good.

So a once future king was turned.

Evil does not describe this feeling inside,
that makes the slowest run and the bravest hide.
It's hatred, not less- and nothing more
I just want to receive what I worked for.

A once future king, banned even from Hell
Ah, but where can a tyrant go now?
I was born to be king, but I am no longer me
I am a once future king who does nothing but dream.

This is beautiful, and so is Loki. I applaud you.

The title of this is very similar to T.H. White's "Once and Future King". Have to wonder if there is a connection.

No, I was not even aware a book by that title existed. Would you recommend it as a good read?
