The StageI shall stand. The others shall sit.
I shall talk. They shall listen.
They pay me to talk. They pay to listen.
The doorway towers over me.
On the otherside is judgement.
My fate is yet to be decided.
If I become my victim,
They will love me.
If my crime glares through,
They will hate me.
My hands clutch the thin book.
The scribblings of a thief mark it's pages.

I was given him. He is mine.
I stood in that cool, white room,
With the other pretenders,
But they failed to capture him.
I won him.

The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
