Poppet

beloved
cherished
a favorite toy
a puppet
pulled
pushed
manipulated
twirled and twisted
waiting
for the song of steel
to sever the strings
and
leave the treasured
poppet
in a heap
of useless
arms and legs.

  1. I read this twice, such strong words. Even if the poppet is in a heap, it can still be loved. If something is loved it can never be usless. Very moving and thought provoking Diana. I can see it so well. The picture is breathtaking. Thank you for touching my heart once again with your words. <3

  3. the web we weave.... the strings
    the love we give....the dance
    the memory held....the song
    to bring it all back

    your words your pictures
    to tug and tease
    pleasure to behold
    grateful my friend
