The story of Katherine of Aragon whilst she watches over Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn (Will be a series of poems in the order of Henry VIII's wives- Anne Boleyn is next!)

I watch over you, Henry.
Every second of every day,
I watch you flirt with wives
And then watch you throw them away

I watched you first with me, Katherine,
Your first and only true wife,
I watched you make decisions and love me
Although it turned out to be full of strife

I loved you,
I promise you,
I was never properly married to your brother,
It was something that he and I knew!

I watched you dally with mistresses,
But I didn’t care,
I let you have your fancies,
You would then leave them in their family homes, then and there

I loved you,
Your silky brazen hair,
Your baby-blue eyes
And how you moved with such flair.

I watched you love my daughter, 
Our only child,
Y
ou watched over her and made her happy,
You adored everything about her from the way she walked to the way she smiled.

One day, you started to dally with one of my ladies,
Lady Anne Boleyn,
She was unholy, impure with her dirty French ways,
When as the anointed Queen, I have Christ within.

I thought it would end quickly,
Like it always did,
But it carried on because she refused you,
And then the love we once had hit a slippery slope and you had begun to skid,

One day you tore my heart apart,
You told me our valid marriage was to be broken,
I cried in my great chamber of state,
And begged God to save your soul,
And cleanse Anne, the devil, who to you had spoken

I watched you marry,
Take my jewels,
And declare our daughter illegitimate,
I cursed Anne and those who liked her as unfaithful fools,

I loved you,
Dear husband,
Even when you did take away my birth right,
When I went to heaven, I became accustomed.

I watched you take little Anne Boleyn,
To the Tower,
For losing a son, just like I did,
And trying to rid yourself of what you called your beautiful flower,

I watched Anne at one time,
From Heaven ,I watched her pray and cry,
You have declared her marriage to you and her children wrong,
And although you promised release, she knew her end was nigh

I watched her prepare for death,
Dress, and lament and weep,
I watched her journey to the Tower green,
Say her prayers, the ########## sword and fall into eternal sleep.

I watch over you, Henry.
Every second of every day,
I watch you flirt with wives
And then watch you throw them away

 

 



Edward: When I walk down the road this is what I see

Bella: Edward, please.

Edward:Everybody stops and stares at me!

Bella: Edward!

Edward: I got sparkly skin and I dont like to show it, show it, show it,

Bella: Think of Renesmee, she doesnt want a father that flaunts himself!

Edward: Im a Cullen and I know it!
