Reflection

She used to walk around pale as a ghost. Smiling and agreeing with the people around making it too hard to focus on the things she loved. Her voice barely came out in a crowd. It didn’t matter anyway because she was never a fan of the reflection she saw in the mirror. So she…

The Doll

She never ate or slept without her doll.She even whispered to her every night as she fell asleep. She cradled her gently,Singing her a lullaby,While promising she’d never leave her side.

That’s Life

You were so little when I nurtured you,And chased your demons away. I gave you my love and attention.I taught you everything I know so you could get by. We created a bond that I thought would last forever.A bond that wouldn’t change over time.A bond that I thought you cherished,That wouldn’t be broken from…
