Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Marionette

Marionette

 

Silently,

I perform,

someone’s marionette …

going through the motions,

following the script,

playing my part

with painted on expressions,

choreographed movements …

I do not need to think.

I do not need to feel.

No choices,

no decisions,

I am just your puppet.

Than Bauk 28 August 2011

Than-Bauk

 

sweet temptation

I would run from

hard won freedom

 

if I could thrive

on a bribe of

word jive – speak up!

 

strong winds and rain

hurricane edge

more pain than storm

 

this loneliness

I confess is

not best for me
