You defame me and
You disrespect me,
When all your chosen words are cast.
Like stones at the sinner, they hit hard.
And I take it, blow by blow.
But there will be a time when I'll feel no more.
That is when I'll cast a shadow over you.
Your brave words never sound so clear.
And your over-confidence amazes me.
The fact that your speech,
Charismatic and royal in its way,
Can always place me in an uncompromising position,
-- For I cannot always find the words.
Disadvantaged though I may be,
You never gave me a doubt.
For when I do get the urge or the desire within,
I'll stand, and cast my shadow over you.
And then we will all see,
As I take the breath,
That forms your words,
Those words that you say
When your world is blocked by my presence.
Me, eclipsing you from the sun.
Standing beneath me
Because I cast a shadow over you.
