"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."


He’s rifling through my memories
Like files left to be organized
By caring hands and a steady gaze
He uses my eyes like telescopes
And forces his voice through my throat
What I see, he sees
And I do whatever he says
Over him I have little control
I am at his mercy
He is my blessing and he is my curse
I must be careful not to displease him
I am his puppet and he is my master
All his wishes are my commands
One day soon I’ll cut the strings
But when I do, I’ll only fall

It's fun to imagine that there are tiny people inside us instead of boring organs and blood.

I like the part you had about "I am his puppet and he is my master" it reminds me of my favorite song Master of Puppets by matallica. :)
