Sad Lonely Doll

Sad Lonely doll sitting in an abandoned flat,

Thinking of nothing but this and that.

A lost future a distance past. 

Nothing left to do but think,

and flounder and sink.

Not so long ago the future looked so bright,

Then one terrible night,

She was left abandoned, to sit on the floor

Listen to the door 

For those that will never return.

The thoughts of the past burn

Twisted and frayed

Dismayed

Sad lonely doll. 

Land of Make Believe

mawage

Land-of-make-believe-sign

She lived in the land of make believe,

Where there was only happy ever after,

Where her prince would never leave,

Would never turn and shaft her.

But he did.

Off he went he found his Snow White.

She tried to throw mud and dirt,

But he knew that this was right

and would not let Snow be hurt.

She begged, she cried.

Stomped her feet and screamed,

Moaned and groaned and sighed,

More than you could have dreamed.

But off he went he left her flat

She wouldn’t face the facts

To make believe he wasn’t a rat

Couldn’t accept Snow had what she lacks

So she took some mud and some straw

Made a man pretended it was him

But everyone she fooled finally saw

That she was really rather dim.

Off she goes around the land

dragging along this straw

and everyone behind their hand

Would laugh because there was no man they saw.

She waits

She waits

She waits for a party that never will start,

Waits for her lover who ripped out her heart.

Listens for a door that will never creak,

Sits all alone crumpled and weak.

She looks at her photos of a happier day,

When she didn’t look this way.

he was handsome and older,

she thought taller and bolder,

Made her lose her heart it won’t be back.

Nor her mind that snapped but not for any lack,

Of hope, hopeless dried up hope.

Which helps her cope.

With loss and betrayal,

romance off the rail.

She was demanding and needy

Grasping and greedy

Til one day he had enough and walked

Her commands he finally balked

Left went out the door

And said darling NEVER MORE.

gravestone woman

and yet she waited.
