embellished doll


EMBELLISHED DOLL
A LULLABY FELL ON THE CHIN OF MINE
IT HAD THE SYMPHONY OF MEMORIES
THAT PLUNGED ME IN TO HER ARMS
YES, MY MOTHER.
SHE PLUNDERED MY SORROWS
AND POURED IT INTO HER HEART
IT THROTTLED HER, STIFLED HER,
BUT A SMILE PERVADED ON HER FACE
SHE PLUNGED INTO MIRAGE
YES, I PLACED HER AS MY SLAVE.
AS SHE OPENED THE WINDOWS FOR ME
JUST LIKE A STREAM I FLOWED
TILL I REACHED THE VALLEY OF SILENCE
SHE OVERTURNED MY INTERPRETATION
ABOUT THE WORLD AND EXISTENCE
SHE PUT ME ON HER LAP
AND HUGGED ME A LOT
SHE SPRAYED ME WITH THE BEAUTY OF LOVE
AS I CRAFTED THE WORD MOM IN ME
MY ENCHANTED DOLL WITH LIFE RESTRICTED
HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM ME
BY SOMEONE TO SOME UNKNOWN LAND
TO JOIN THE ALMIGHTY HAND IN HAND

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
