Puppet Strings

I dance upon these puppet strings

to please your every wake and call,

You clap your hands and sing along,

How I want these strings to fall.

I cannot move without puppet strings,

Your hands they make me jump and walk,

For you are the master of us all,

And we, ourselves, the flock.

I do not see past puppet strings,

an invisible line that holds me back,

I stand still, head bowed down,

Until summoned to attack.

I do not feel with puppet strings,

My heart is lifeless, filled with cold,

Inside I'm empty, filled with air,

For I only do as I am told.

I sense there's something wrong with puppet strings,

For puppet strings fall to the ground

The puppetmaster walks away,

And I find myself confound.

I collect dust without no puppet strings,

For from my strings, I am now free,

I found that something is missing all along,

Those puppet strings belong to me.


Short no? Second to last stanza sucks. ._.;

Five points to whoever gets it! Btw, have I written with something with puppet strings in it? =/ I have a feeling I did for some reason.

It's speaking of Pokemon training.

The Pokemon plays the puppet,
The trainer's the puppeteer,
The strings are the Pokeball,
And the Pokemon's loyalty to the trainer.
'The flock' is the team,
The puppet's released.


And the second to last line is definitely out-of-tune. SB

Close but not really. Not theme-wise anyways, but you can of this poem anyway you want to.

Isn't it like you think someone else contrals your life and holds your leash, but when that someone leaves, you relize your life has always been contraled by you? Thats my guess.
