Porcelean Doll

Porcelean Doll

A Poem by YourXArtist

Being compared to a Porcelean doll that shows what lies within and silent.




Hung upon a shelf

lies a porcelean figure

inside shows oneself

broken and disfigured

her cold glass skin

waiting for arms embrace

shows what lies within

her stone cold face

hidden beneath that hollowed smile

longs for a chance

for something worthwhile

A raise in advance

From her darkest days

and through the eyes

shines hopes rays

trying to disguise

the empty, saddened dreams

awaiting to come alive

free the silenced screams

so she's not deprived

from her twisted smle

short, but beautiful word choices and sentances none the less. i really liked how you stayed different from the other poems about dolls i have read. all of them describe how strange or scary they are.
