Rag doll girl

Rag doll

emotionless

ridiculous

bending at your

every will

Cracked voices

in the silence

couldn't contain

the obvious pain

realising

the toxicity

of you

yet knowing

I would not

just

give

up.

 

Ten minutes ago

intertwined

we laughed

tears unlike these

Before I whisper

Please?

And you dismiss

with another kiss

I concede

once more

I plead

but you slam

another door

in my face,

I wont let it

lie.

 

I leave

Early morning

crisp nicotine

heart beat

pumping regret

into hate filled veins

Broken glass

under bare feet

A lethal concoction,

I am not

your rag doll

a promise

I still

don't

believe

 

 

Small dreams

The broken

For a moment

allows herself

to fall in love

with perfect strangers

She dreams

of slow dancing

with faceless men

she'll never know

 

She lowers her guard

just enough

to see a future

with the stranger

on the 36

Who promises

with his eyes, maybe

to love her

between King Street

And Tanners End.
