I would appreciate, if you have the time, to leave me your interpretations of what you read here. I enjoy the many aspects of thought that others have upon reading my poems. I was a young farm child. I moved to a fishing village when I was abut 10 and mother remarried. Somewhere around 12 I guess I was molested by my brother.

Best Poem of Barbara Vanier


See me dance, dance for you
Move my arms, my leg
You give me everything
Nothing from you I beg
My mouth opens and I sing
The words no one can hear
I take a bow as the crowd
Stands and starts to cheer

See me move, move for you
Contort and turn about
Never a moment’s haziness
No words even grow to shout
For your amusement I play for you
Dancing on my strings
‘Till when done you throw me down
Like one of your many things

Marionette I love you
You show me life complete
Marionette you and me
Die to be free
Marionette I love ...
