"If you don't have any shadows, you're not standing in the light."
- Lady Gaga

I am the lord
of broken things,
of birds that fly
but do not sing,
of bitterness, lingering,
of all the sorrows life can bring.

I am the master
of endless nights,
of windows and wishes
and too-cold knives,
of something like hope
and nothing like peace,
of all our lost extremities.

I am the queen
of wasted dreams,
of phones that ring
and empty streets
of ginger hair
and drawn-out waits,
of broken hearts
and stifled screams.

And since
I am the god
of shattered lives
I breathe a lie
I kiss a dream
and lose my sanity
far, far in between.

This is about me, and partly about my struggle to be completely independent.
