The Doll's House

My world is as a doll's house
And I am looking in
I see my friends and family there
But I am looking in
I want to be on the inside
And even though I often tried
I never felt that I belonged
I lack the love for which I've longed

My world is as a doll's house
And it's where my loved ones dwell
It's lonely on the outside
It's lonely here in hell
All I know resided inside
I'm stuck out here and forced to hide
I just want to live within
Comfortable within my skin

My world is as a doll's house
And it's where I want to be
But I am barred to enter
I am forced to watch and see
I interact with all inside
Move all things both far and wide
But they wont see me anywhere
They cannot see that I am there

My world is as a doll's house
But I'm only looking in
I want to be part of my world
But I'm only looking in
My whole life is stuck inside
I have no will no sense of pride
Don't leave me stuck with restless souls
Let me live amongst the dolls

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
