"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

You are
My puppeteer
Your silver thread
Holds me down.

You are
A child’s hand
And I’m a fortune cookie-
You open me up
And read what’s inside:
My darkest desires,
That come to life.

You are
A Choreogreapher,
And I follow your every move.
I am tossed through your lithe fragments,
Like a doll in your hands.

But I am snipping the strings.
I am breaking my shell.
I am stealing back the spotlight,
And I am ready to fly again.

Because you and I
Are done.

I love this very much.But i do not quite understand the third stanza about the choreographer and the doll doesnt quite make sense to me.But all of your poems are wonderful and you are so full of talent!!!!!;)
