– i once believed you –

If you find disillusion
in your dancing strings,
please scissor them quick;
watch the joy it brings.

Aren’t you
tired… of
playing the fool? I’m so
tired… of
being one for you. Aren’t you
stressed out… from
lies on your lips? I’m too
stressed out… from
strings on my hips.

Could have named me Mary, a
marionette I was –
when I once believed you,
when you held my trust.
No time left to play pretend, for
make-believe and such, ’cause
now I don’t believe you, and
all you hold is dust.

D.J. Whisenant
