On Your Toes, Held By Strings

Strung up so obscenely

That smile isn’t real

None of you is

Lifeless eyes stare back, unblinking

Forced to move in ways that seem human

A false personality being presented

You aren’t seeing the full picture

Not real

A pawn

Being controlled

You don’t see the one behind the strings

And you haven’t noticed

The strings are on you

Even when all this time

Your reflection was staring back

But it doesn’t matter now, does it?

It’s time to perform
