Dominus (working title)

I may seem shy in real life,

but when I am onstage,
I am in my element.

The stage is my domain;
everyone in the audience my subjects;
and my kingdom stretches as far as the wind can carry my voice.

The words I speak tonight
will remain in your subconscious mind
for the rest of your life.

The word can become flesh.
And the one with the microphone can change the world.

A writer. By degree and by profession. Also strongly advocates ten-finger typing to all writers because that's what you do for a living, so be efficient at it.

This might be one of your best works yet. Simply written, but very effective. It subdues.
