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



And fled

Leaving her



Pretty doll

Lost all she ever lived for




Pretty doll

Was bitter


She fumbled

Lost in that patch of dark

Crying for a release
