~ Puppet Strings ~
By Nicole Pirri

Just let me go
From this world please.
I beg you to cut from me
These painful puppet strings.

I'm unable to do
My heart's desire.
Living in isolation
By my string supplier.

Up, then down, then left and right;
Harmful commands are made.
I try to move and jump
But every time pushed to be laid.

Your scissors are too blunt
No freedom for me today.
Remember that life attached to puppet strings
Is not as easy as they say.

    I used to do marienet puppets, and the thing about the cutting of the strings. even if you don't want to move the way the puppet master is making you, at least there is life you as long as the strings are connected. lol. 5/5

    Theres not much I can really critique you on here, because I saw nothing wrong with this piece, at least I myself didn't. :] I thought that you did a great job with this, I loved the uniqueness in this piece. The title was really intriguing. Well done. This is flawless!

    Wow, this poem was amazing honestly. I never read anything like this before and its very true life is full of being a puppet on a string. theres always someone there to tell you no if you go a certain way or you don't want to make the wrong move because your afraid someone will not back you up from it. You have an amazing point on this poem.

    keep it up.
    keep on writing.
    love always and forever.

    You make a valid point and I couldn't put it any better. Life is full of choices and if we are connected by strings then how are we to make them? We have to make the choices oursleves and be able to follow through with them on our own if we are to be truly free.
