Poem by One of my Characters

i am a mouse
by Grey Wheeler


My lover, my master: I dare not escape
My giant, my keeper: I can not contest
The world forgotten: he is my landscape
Clutched to his chest, i happily rest

My lover is deep, i am shallow
My life ruled by his velvet glove
i am made smaller in his shadow
and i made larger by his love 

My lover cares not of my forgotten shame
He is god, my will is his to command,
His love is my breathe, my heart, the same
and i am content, in the palm of his hand
