Mandolyn ...

i dropped us and you were glass

your frown made houses fall-
yards became rubble
i climbed
to feed you my laugh, my heart
tagging along behind me
kicking coke cans,
picking up nails, poking itself
to see if my blood
runs as fast
as you do.

a music box coughed
up memories
that weren't mine,
but you stopped scowling,

faced the field
where i hurt you

and threw a cotton ball at me,
no longer drenched
in rile rain.

    I don't usually pick out the great verses that I love in a poem...I just like to soak up the

    I love the way you write, my favorite line:
    a music box coughed
    up memories
    that weren't mine,
    but you stopped scowling,
    Extremely beautiful. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
