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
