Marionette

I am the beat that moves your feet,
I am the source of your delight,
I am your breath and I’ll be your death,
I am the king of your body and soul.

I am the smile behind the upward-
Curl of your mouth and I control
The tilt of your head when you question
The truth of what I dictate to you.

I am the glimmering in your eyes,
I am the way you move your hands,
I am the one who knows your mind,
I am the king of your body and soul.

I am the maker, sustainer, creator of
Your every action, thought and word:
At my whim you talk and sing
I am your world, your everything.

I am the fire of your emotion,
I set your clockwork soul in motion,
I am the object of your devotion,
I am the king of your body and soul,
I am the king of your body and soul.
