Kings and Queens

The queen feels lonely,
listening to the rain
as it comes down in a sheet.
Each clap of thunder startles her,
and she wonders if he hears it too.

His kingdom is vast but
welcoming, a blanketed fortress,
sealing in the heat.
He offers her comfort, protection; 
it's what he loves to do.

She's not scared or weak
or asking for help,
but it's no fun being alone.
So they take shelter in each other
and together ride out the storm.
