Stuffed Toy!


He gruffed at me, and
scoffed at me
my stuffed toy!
it took centuries to make him
with all soft stuff inside
with my own hands
in a room where i make toys
to stay beside me in tough days;
now a minute past, he's lost
it's late hour of dark night
my heart misgives
- - - - - - - - -
if he's hungry...

    In the Robitic era, we seek the joy, take out pressure with our own hand made toys! Personifying them to be our real soulmates.

    in sentimental things of heart
    every thing is more than
    what he was
    deep and sweet are affairs of the heart/ well done (Report) Reply

    if this is the feeling for a 'toy', am just toying with the thought, , how humane is the poetess for humanbeings, a short poem that speaks a volume of the heart stuffed with sensitivity. (Report) Reply

    it does express pains of any one. a poetry is ebriched when it expresses pains or pleasure of any one. toys are made in several kind. its breaking is a matter of grief wht so ever be the reason but love for that toy is never erased. beautiful melancholic write. (Report) Reply

    It took centuries to make him
    Great effort and how time expands when carefully making a stuffed toy. And the concern for the lost toy which gets a new life and maybe hungry. Beautiful poem. (Report) Reply
