"It's all a part of the human experience"


I try to represent the voice of law

To bringeth happiness and provide peace

War of the houses hath left me in awe

My power, lost causing peace to be ceased

 

A new entity hath taken thee throne

Unexpected yet powerful than force

It has hurt, causing some to be alone

Like a dark horse that hath taken its course


Love, more compelling than hate yet the same

A selfish love, giving psychotic thrills

In the death of dearests, love is to blame

As killers tend to know the ones they kill


The ones we know are who we should fear most

They know how to bring out ghosts once held close
