Iron Lock – A Captured Faerie Poem

“Make for me an iron lock
And keep me yours, and keep me yours
Break the key against a rock
And keep me yours.

Shut the door that I came through
And keep me yours, and keep me yours
A home to miss, a loss to rue
To keep me yours.

Feed me naught but thought of you
And keep me yours, and keep me yours
And I shall starve. Before I do–
Keep me yours.

And when my body’s cold and light
And kept and yours, and kept and yours
Build of it fire, steaming bright
And make it yours.

And forge in it a lock that burns
And keep it yours, and keep it yours
To fit my neck when I return,
For to be yours again.”
