A Poem by costa siwale

maybe our fate is controlled by greater beings/things, elusive unseen. maybe


Fixed! to my heart mind and soul,
puppeteer-ed by a living shadow,
From above and down below. 

mechanized bone and flesh,
like mannequins undressed,
through to the soul,
like candles in a storm. 

strings! are strung,  
by gods, by shadows.

If this is a work-in-progress I look forward to seeing more. Being "puppeteer-ed by a living shadow" is a beautiful line.
