I Am Your Puppet

I Am Your Puppet

A Poem by writingcrazy55555

I poem I wrote today!


I am your puppet,

you restrain me with strings.

I can never wander too far

before you pull me back in.

You yank the strings,

up and down, up and down,

and my arms and legs obey


You laugh and laugh,

for this is clearly


to you.

But then

you hold me

 in your arms,

carress me, kiss me,

and I forget about

the strings tied

to my arms and legs.

But then when I try

to walk away

the strings

restrain me,

hold me in place

like prey.

I am your puppet,

restrained by strings.

I cannot wander too far,

before you pull me back in.

Lovely flows brilliantly.
This piece is a prime example of well used repetition, the use of such ni this case, feels like teh effect of being pulled back has even had effects on the words, caught between walking away and not being able to . Wonderful

Thanks prepre!
This poem is quite nice but i felt like it didn't flow too nicely. Other than that though, i loved the concept. It reminds me of someone very close to me. Anyhow, nice write. Well done.

I like this a lot. I think the whole poem is very metaphoric. I see the strings as a symbol of maybe the control that a person has over another person. That controlling spirit in someone can cause a relationship to crumble, but it can also make it impossible to leave. Nicely illustrated in this poem.

Thanks :)
I like this. I think it's sweet, and I interpret the 'strings' to be the, at least in my life, attachment I feel to people I care strongly for.
