Broken Doll #poetry

Pressed against the glass

too soon to be forgotten

once held in your warm hand

of death I am begotten

Dried forever on a shelf

catching dust in a vase

where there was a smile

vacant stare is set in place

Forced to be your doll

arms bend and legs extend

feeling there is not

love you would only upend

Never On Wednesday #poetry

never on Wednesday

you fool can’t you see

the playing is over

our love it can’t be

never on Wednesday

as I slam out the door

my heart is left breaking

shattered no more

never on Wednesday

our love through the night

it never was nothing

and never alright

never on Wednesday

I look with pooled eyes

you tell me you love me

wrapped in your truth-telling lies

Cry From the Deep #magpietale #poetry

Release me from this eternal pain

a woman once

shunned by a man

he incarcerated me in this watery existence

Free me from this cold existence

I breathed the air once

walked the fertile green earth

place me in the ground

Unshackle me

leave my hands

to lie peacefully

by my side
