In that world, that giant world,
sunlight burns and shadows prey.
They grab you, and they scratch you,
cover your mouth and drag you
I sit locked behind this door;
safety in exchange for freedom.
I knew no face but Father’s,
I knew no place but Father’s
I paint the paper mirror,
and beam at Father’s praise.
As I with sins the canvas brushed –
oh, the blameless lives I brushed

An "Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney" fanpoem. It's about the character Vera Misham, and very SPOILERY. She was nearly kidnapped at a young age, and hasn't gone outside since, nor seen anybody except her father. When she was 12, her father put her to work making forgeries - both of paintings, and of evidence to be used in murder trials. She didn't know that what she was doing was wrong; all she knew was that it made Father happy.
The meter on this thing KILLED ME. :(
