The Engagement of the Governor and Me

Picture_of_me_1by June 31 Aug 2013

There is a ball that I must attend, you see.
'Tis a celebration of the engagement of the Governor and me.
Everyone will be there including the King and Queen.
I must be dressed to the finest if I dare to be seen.
The Governor is a very rich man who, by the goodness of his heart, took me in when I was eight.
I had no idea that his good will was going to be a timeless fate.
You see, the Governor did not raise me as a daughter but to be his future wife.
With his selfless act I have great gratitude; I owe this man my life.
A knock on my door from a servant, "Its time my Dear."
My heart skips a beat not out of love...out of fear.
I look in the mirror for one last glance.
Will people really see a bride to be or will they see some one trying to escape at the slightest chance?
Will they hear the crackles from my pearl shackles?
I am imprisoned in a dress that refuses to let me breath,
let alone allow me the thought to leave.
I see a strong hand placed upon my shoulder.
My blood begins to run much colder.
"Here my Love, an engagement gift." He places, around my neck, a diamond collar.
My soul is in severe agony and begins to hollar.
His coal black eyes meet my icey blue eyes.
"Tonight's the night where I tell the world that you are forever mine. Our love, my pet, is a phenomenon that never dies."
There is a ball that I must attend, you see.
'Tis the celebration of the engagement of the Governor and me.
Everyone in the world will be there, except for she.
Because, she escaped out the window and flew away to the stone walk that left her body broken but her soul free.
