My Heart on Puppet Strings

When my heart ran on puppet strings
It bled tears and lived in a cage
Very little room for growth
Very little air to breath

The puppet master at work
Twisting my mind and crushing my dreams
With every pull of a string
I lose my voice and no longer can sing

I named each bar and sang the song of yesterday
In hopes for a better tomorrow
Where my wings of hopes
Became nightmares of sorrow

As you pull my strings
No one can hear my screams
And I fall apart at the seams

Brought out on display
I Perform like a Marionette
A smile on my face and joy in my eyes
Tell the lies as my freedom dies

You pull the strings attached to your rod
Master Puppeteer
I am forced to dance on your strings

You are the King performing
Multiple string acts and hiding in the shadows of me
Your skilled performance
Of control
Has no one fooled

As you lurk in the dark
Like a pervert in the park
You pick your prey
And get on your way
To play
with someone’s heart

Now you are left with your rod
your cage
and on your demented stage
your own puppet
playing and dancing to your
own games

Mr. Master Puppeteer…
Is that a tear?

Artist's Description

Written from a dream i had today 12/31/09. Woke up did a sketch of it and then the words and a story started to flow.

The dream…. a red heart on puppet strings controlled by big strong hands… a bird cage sits in the background with the door open, a home for the hear on strings…. an audience laughs as the heart dances….

Wonder what this signifies?
