A Doll's Story

A Doll's Story

A Poem by Molly
"

A poem about a doll's determination to be played with again.

"

 

You drop me on the floor, and I don’t mind

 

I lie for a week and stay behind

 

I know that you will pick me back up again

 

For you I think is a valuable true friend

 

It is a month now and I will not loose hope

 

I will not cry or pout or mope

 

My friends tell me to get up and find a new girl or boy

 

Because this room is no place for my kind of toy

 

It has been a year and she’s not cleaned he room

 

And I still lay, awaiting my doom

 

For I must lay, not blowing my cover

 

I must be just like my wooden doll mother

 

I lay and I lay without becoming alive

 

I now have a colony of dust bunnies by my side

 

I myself am becoming all dusty

 

All of my metal wind up friends are all rusty

 

And one day when I felt most mad

 

Or did I feel sad? Then I felt smad

 

I finally got up with my wobbly legs

 

I listen and listen to my heart as it begs

 

It tells me not to go but I know I must

 

I tired and sick of all that dust

 

I took one step, and then one step more

 

Until I finally got out the door.

 

I made it to the mailbox in about two days

 

I felt what it’s like to be hit by the sun’s rays

 

I guess it was garbage day, and the truck came around

 

To avoid being taken, I ducked myself down

 

I lay again because my heart was breaking

 

I knew myself that I would be taken

Wow. This is your first poem?! You are truly talented. This is so sad and melodic. Very enchanting and I love the wording you used when describing the doll's fate. Check out the wording in the fourth line from the top, but other than that it's perfect. Amazing job.

Thanks. It didn't feel quite right writing that line!
