Marionette

Pull my strings
watch me walk, talk, and act
just like you tell me to.
There are times
when you give pause.
I dare to dream
that I can choose,
yet when I go to move
you pull my strings.
Hope is chased away.
You get bored
my strings go slack
and I am nothing more
than a broken puppet on the floor.

Prompt: Pull my strings
