A Real Doll


 

A Japanese doll in kimono with fan.

 

I joined the group

 

of life-like dolls

 

Useless was talk

 

As my look said it all

 

 

 

They dressed me up

 

And dressed me down

 

I was the life

 

They could not have

 

 

 

Their mind was me

 

Never trouble

 

If left behind

 

How insecure

 

 

 

Flawless beauty

 

Who wants to make believe

 

Silky spun dreams

 

Ever so sweet

 

 

 

Permanent member of the club

 

That demands a still heart

 

Low me low I don’t see

 

Raise me up to the world

 

 

 

Price me

 

Value my true maker

 

Break me

 

Must be insured

 

 

 

I melt with you

 

If we should burn

 

Shattered fine glass

 

Like bone to ash

 

 

 

To hold me

 

To love me

 

So in spite of

 

Then because of

 

It all
