China Doll

By RavenEssence

China doll
with eyes of glass.
Cry invisible tears
each time you pass.

Molded lips
painted red.
Silent words
never said.

Carelessly tossed
with all the scraps.
One of life's
cruel mishaps.

Broken limbs
tiny pieces
glued haphazardly.

Alone she sits
in her misery.

    Funny how so many people think that if you just pick up the pieces of your life everything goes on normally but what is business as usual anyway? If it’s something that hurts as much as eternal loneliness. Well done

    A lot of meaning in such few words. Feel like that at times. Nicely done, really enjoyed it :)

    Thank you. I think we all do feel that way at times. There has been at least one person in all our lives that have just used us, played with us and then set us aside as if we were never really that important. Things left unsaid, no closure...glad you enjoyed the read.
