Broken Barbie

Broken Barbie

A Poem by MsJewel

~ interesting people walk Hollywood Boulevard, meet Barbie ~

Watch where you walk

Step on a crack

break your mother’s back

Yeah you…broken Barbie with the broken smile

broken nail

heart chipped lipstick red

perfumed wrist, Channel? no just decay

 

Street lamp heat turns to gray

just another hanging tree

free fall baby in a dark abyss

 

Inviting shadows and clicking heels

with vacant eyes

and empty pockets

She felt your soul twitch

once in a dream

Welcome to hell

Wanna climb the devils staircase

and lie to her awhile?

 

But not tonight baby

can’t give it away

Didn’t mama teach you

nothin is for free

 

Except a free fall baby in a dark abyss

 

So don’t push her

There’s a hole in her stocking for a reason

John..or is it Jack, Jim, Jerry

Who the f**k cares

You’re all flip switch nightmares in a wet dream

and all your sweet cream lip service

won’t warm icy shivers in deficient veins

or blistered skin itching nicotine blues

So pull her a lucky strike

and watch where you walk

                       

Didn’t mama teach you

nothin is for free

 

Except a free fall baby in a dark abyss

As you can see, my eyes are wide, my mouth hanging open and my sneakers screech to a halt. I would never guess this poem came from you; it's so far "out of the box" for you... Not that I'm concerned with your box, umm, omg, I mean it's unexpected in both subject and style.

Never underestimate someone's intelligence, resolve or inner strength by the outer shell. You told it like it is... and I like that a lot.

wow. this is a formidable forceful spill from your usually lilting quill. Wonderful and brutal and painfully honest.

Don't we at least offer up half a chance

This is a fantastic write. I loved it from the title to the end. I especially love the chipped nail -heart analogy. One small thing, I assume you meant "Chanel" when you wrote Channel? Chances are it was an autocorrect thing.

I've been known to have a few typos here and there - my mind works faster than I can type! Thanks so.. read more
I've seen many broken barbies in my lifetime, which is not been too long, and the had so much potential until they had no opinion for themselves anymore. Now they live in bleak and meaningless existence. A wonderful write and new favorite for me!
