Broken Doll

A doll

Used to spin and dance

She was so pretty

All envied her

As she spun through darkness

And light

.

So pretty

Such a pretty doll

Flailed in her dance

And fell to the ground

Breaking her foot

.

Pretty doll

Could no longer dance

She tried

But her dancing

Was flawed

Just like her foot

.

The crowd

Who used to surround her

Clapping

Chattered

And fled

Leaving her

Alone

.

Pretty doll

Lost all she ever lived for

.

Pretty doll

Was bitter

Alone

She fumbled

Lost in that patch of dark

Crying for a release
