The Puppeteer

pull_the_string_by_bee_tea-d3czytk

Strings of white run down

into figures, comical like clowns

Faces white as ivory

emotionless, dancing into the melody

 

Only to the audience I smile

Only to th audience I act

Only to the audience I let go

 

For once I thought I was real

A memory etched in my heart

all those images I have seen

are they unreal

 

As far as I remember

I have been tricked

over and over and over

about a life that was never mine

 

“Relax”, he says

let your arms flow

let your legs fall

let your head down

Just as you have always done
