on the brink of my future
and even the pinkie toe seizes up when asked to move.
so this is how it’s going to be?
the heart at odds with feet.
now, i’m no puppet master
but i know that the marionettes that are led by their chest
look more human than the ones led by their feet.
and maybe this is just my romantic musing,
but i swear i can tell the difference!
and if the Universe is in charge
and we’re all just players in the show…
i want to be the marionette that dances from the heart.
