About Me

Monday, June 4, 2012


I am standing here confounded
By the queen before a throne
That I so wish to vanquish
And reclaim for my own
I can’t seem to understand
The words that she has said
Do they come from her
Or the voices in her head
I’m teetering on eggshells
Afraid that they will break
Queasy from the bad smells
That make my stomach ache
I’ve found her words are tainted
With disparaging untruths
It seems I’m unacquainted
With the unknown sleuths
Who’ve gathered on a bangle
She wears around her arm
And I’m the one she dangles
As if I were a charm
