Lyonelle

Lyonelle
I am just a doll....
I need not your sympathy
These feelings are not real to me
They're only a collection of things
I wish I could experience
The sun rests against my flesh
But I do not feel its warmth
Water drips upon my head
But that I cannot feel either
I am not a stone
I am simply a being crafted
Not in the womb
But in the imagination
Yet I am not so unlucky
For the heart of a child grants me life
It is in those precious moments
That I truly exist
It is in those precious moments
That I truly feel love
I am just a doll....
Lyonelle

Lyonelle
I am just a doll...
My home is wherever I am seated
Sometimes I rested on a shelf
Looking out over a sun drenched neighborhood
Other days I rested in a treasure chest
Surrounded by other dolls
But I must have been upon this shelf for so very long
The room is dusty and the walls are cracked
Bugs scuttle across the floors
Yet still I dream of being alive again
Though you no longer come around
And I fear I have been forgotten
My life has come to a stand still
Yet I am not so unlucky
For the heart of a child granted me life
It was in those precious moments
That I truly existed
It was in those precious moments
That I truly felt love
I am just a doll....
Lyonelle
