The Invisible Ruler

Rating: 5.0

I heard it once and I believed,
That was my name and I was relieved,
That was enough and I was satisfied,
Didn't matter if was truth or someone lied,

They told me again and I was bound to see,
That was the life and that was the fee,
She was the anima and I was the animus
I was the plus and she was the minus

Years kept coming through and they wouldn't be stopped

Thanks so much for the comments, glad you appreciated. And about the Invisible Ruler title, it will depend solely on who reads. You can udnerstand it as someone that tries, directly, to rule your life... then it will depend on the context, it can be a person or a group of persons. It can be an unknown people around which customs may exclude you from a certain circle. It can be a government... And this is extended, also, to yourself. If, for example, you don't do things due fear (any kind of fear, fear of being harmed, being mocked, being excluded, being considered out of your place) . In this case, you could be your own Invisible Ruler, restraining your will. If the words can touch you and you can see a resemblance with you, small as it can be, come to think of it: what keeps you from doing things you would like to? Think about it, who's ruling your actions? Is it visible, now?
