In a cube,
so confused,
Depressed, hurt...

Alone

"One step forward..."
"One step back,"
Says voice one and two.
I take orders...

Like a puppet,
without strings.
Or maybe I do,
I don't know

"Side to side..."
Voice one commands,
"Twirl around..."
Said voice two.

I named them long ago,
but they never asked me...
What my name is,
it hurts in a way.

I got here...
A while ago,
when I did...
Something wrong.

I sang an evil song,
to an innocent child
Yes... Let's say that.
If you please...

"One step forward..."
"One step back..."
I feel the walls...
But I'm trapped.

Never looked up,
now I will.
I'll break a command.
What a thrill.

I look up,
two men gasp,
"She has a mind!"
Voice one exclaims.

"No one must know."
Voice two calmly states.
"We'll keep her here."
While they were talking...

I saw what I needed to.
Strings.
