and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Visions of me occupy your days
my life’s been planned in intricate ways.
And though my future’s set in your mind
I’m skillfully taught your wish is blind.
I've been manipulated for years
achieving your dreams with quiet tears.
And never sure what to say or do
I've become a reflection of you.
I lived my teens by your golden rule
repressing love while playing the fool.
Yet I'm a hollow soul without spark
alive I exist, empty and stark.
Over the years you’re pleased as can be
accomplishing all your goals though me.
And you don't even pretend to care
I'm but a shadow barely aware.
You’re defiantly proud of your deed
molding my life you swore you’d succeed.
And the look in your eyes seals my fate
for there is no love, there is no hate.
