A place where I'll rant and rave or humor and enlighten the people around me. (Well Hopefully)

Published on September 26, 2009 By Zoologist03 In Poetry


Grinning figure you twist and turn.
Going through motions you don’t learn.
Someone pulls and tugs your wires,
Your body is frail and quickly tires.

And you don’t try to fight,
You perform throughout the night.

And you dance,
And you dance,
And you dance.

Dancing to those devilish strings,
Not holding hope for better things.
Trapped in the same routine,
Your tortured self remains unseen.

And still you don’t try to flee,
Just frolic with imagined glee.

And you dance,
And you dance,
And you dance.

Melancholy fills you all the while,
But you wear that painted smile.
And your eyes no longer gleam.
You’ve lost the ability to even dream,

Suppressed emotion by flick of wrist,
Nothing left in you to resist.

And you dance,
And you dance,
And you dance.
