Like A Puppet! ! - Poem by Becky Ginn

I’ve lost how many times
I balance my heart strings
Ironing them out to have the perfect crease
s t r e t c h I n g them
Until they are perfectly aligned

I’m muttering “it’s fine! ”
Yes this time!
And the next
(I don’t know)
Yes, I will be fine
(I hope so)
You do believe me don’t you?

The scuff will shine right out
And the dent is nothing to worry about
NEW- Just in;
“You can fix a broken heart”
(As long as the pieces don’t come apart)

Compulsively making it shine
To see your reflection
(as I’ve lost mine)
The crow obstructs my communication
As he screams on the phone lines
(Yes, I am just fine)

So pull the strings
Tie it in a bow
Throw it over your shoulder
Watch her dance
Hearts on the line to make it a chance.

Make it fit
Like paper origami
Lighting the spark
to keep it Lit
And let it shine

All along keeping the strings perfectly
Because with all time
you know…
I am just fine.
