Zucker Fuß - Poem by stephanie mellisa kievaughan

If i was a toy
given as a gift to Zucker Fuß
Out of Love
on Her Berfday
With my box
for Hours She Would Play
To my dismay
she'd put me on a shelf some where
I'd lean back,
and stare
As the years went bye
i would never loose
The gleam within
my porcelain eye.
As she would surely adore me
upon my shelf i would think unto my self,
And ponder and wonder why
she would never draw me close
If she could ever love me the most
if she thinks of me
As she's spreading Jelly
on her breakfast toast
Or how far she Lives
from the coast.
or if she's seen the Holy Ghost

Poet's Notes about The Poem

feeling Lonely within Second Life. Anonymity online drives people not to draw close to others. not to trust one another. people disregard good intentions so often they fail to draw good people close. and only value a shallow existence. and avoid the deep emotions of the poets heart deep and wide as an ocean. {that which ails me. Is that which compels me to write}

    I was thinking of a forgotten toy on a shelf, as I read, and also of how as a poet we are overlooked by others, I often call myself Mrs Nobody, or Mrs Invisible, it is good to find a place where we can share our passion for writing with like minded people who care enough to put thoughts into the written word too. Computers and internet have made it possible to have many online friends but ones we would possibly never meet or know properly, which can also make you feel lonely in the real world I guess. Catch 22 good poetry. (Report) Reply

    Very sincere, young and intimate lines! you are strong! ! !

    And ponder and wonder why
    she would never draw me close
    If she could ever love me the most
    if she thinks of me
