Marionette's Strings

My feeling
On your strings
They dance to and fro
Just like a graceful ballerina
You treat me with kindness
And use it for your own gain
I beg for all of your attention
But with disgust you walk away
What is it that I must do?
My love for you won’t just disappear
When alone I cry my silent tears
I smile to you for that bit of affection
But you only kick me to the side
And treat me like some rabid infection
Why can I not run away from this fate?
Only follow where my leash is pulled?
Only thought of as an animal?
You’ll play with me till you seem bored
Throw me away when you see a better toy
I cry and cry and now live endlessly alone
My feelings for you
They swing lifelessly to and fro
Only on broken stings
Lay a marionette with a broken home
