Between my shadow and my soul

Ventriqulous Vant*

In front of them all today, my voice
Stopped, peaked, spluttered, dead
Down the rabbit pit, towards uncertain hell
Like snow white who's prince charming forgot,
and for eternity she screams rage, rage against
the dying of the light, in the midst of decay
you become a burro that toils and tills fields
noticing only the muscular aches and cramps
no idea as to the source, the idea, the belief
with a 5 cent copper piece of change to show
for your day, thinking big means redefining the
limits in your head but limits become road signs
and you pray, this too will pass

*Noojlish word combining rant and vent and pronounced in a pseudo French accent

A glass of water to clear the throat?
I'm saying Vant like some strange nordic-german hybrid; 'Ven I vant nu shooze, I vill haf them.'

Sorry, I'm just being silly.

I dont have any comment except that Saaleha's comment is funny. Also i think it's 'princess whose' not who's cos there isn't a contraction or something.

The real reason for my comment is the word veri - visem, it sounds like a russian (or as Saaleha calls them Nordic-German) saying my name :D
