and arms come to life --

feet dance to silent music.

After the play

you sit.


Collecting dust

No pull on the string

is needed

to allow tears to flow.

Hi Rebecca, so short and to the point. This reminds of the poem by a Mexican Ventriloquist, Johnny Welch, titled The Puppet. Thank you for sharing this heartfelt piece....

This tugs at the heartstrings as surely as that puppeteer's strings pull at the arms and legs of their charges. It is sad that so many people are manipulated by love and the call of the heart. Well done Becca

Sometimes the puppet master doesn't pull the strings out of pure cruelty.
Original poem to say what's in the shadows after the laugh.
