Antique Abyss

Upon an empty shelf in a place No one can remember sits a doll in lace Frilled collar, Elizabethan taste Blue eyes twinkle on her face Cherubic lips ready for a kiss, Dusty blond - of a quality long missed Alone on a shelf she just sits Waiting for someone to remember her in her antique abyss.

Amy, just stopped by to sample some of your poetry. This one is lovely. A sad story in such brevity. A fate all to many must endure. I think I picked up a little metaphor on life here.
