the singer stands upon the stage
looking out and looking in
but mostly looking out

the singer is confident looking out
and her voice is pitch perfect
she commands an audience of the spellbound

offstage she is bound by what is in
she hides the inside by the typical means of escape
a narcotic certainty that makes evasion possible

the singer knows love on the outside
but on the inside she knows only longing
it is her muse
