Marionette

laura ferreira human marionette

he comes to you in shadow
and in secret
not quite seen
a calm confident voice
whispering your insecurities
chiseling away
erasing parts and replacing them
doll face
with crimson painted smile
broken bits of heart
old letters and faded photos
bound into a body
moved
tugged
about by jerky marionette strings
he has remade you
in his vision
and you don’t know how to feel
with someone elses broken bits of heart

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
