Puppet

September 30, 2010

Working the puppet
through another day,
another few hours,
of forced smiles
of half hearted grins,
a round of drinks
or pills to soften
the hard edges
waiting just beyond
obligations, imagined,
but still forcing
another few hours,
another few days,
another few weeks,
until I let go
of the strings.

    • Lots of extra energy lost to keeping up pretenses some days.
