i would slay dragons for you
even though girls aren’t “supposed to”
and i would tear down fences,
white pickets and cast-iron.
i would shatter locks and burn planks
and crumble stone and
drown in the moat you built
to protect yourself with.
i’d joust and stab and
learn the loose an arrow
at a moving target
if it meant you would sleep next to me
for the rest of our lives.
i would crawl through dank dungeons
and shield you from lion teeth
and don a suit made of chainmail
if you would undress me tonight.
i would do anything to preserve
our fantastic love.
