A Broken and Lonely DollI don't understand.A Broken and Lonely Doll by DeputyDiabolical
Am I invisible?
Do I repel people?
Is there something wrong with me?
Do I not smile enough?
Are my eyes not sparkly enough?
Am I too quiet?
I'm sorry I'm not perfect for you.
I really am trying.
It's scary being alone.
I don't like being this broken doll,
Sitting on this dusty shelf.
I'm not very recognizable.
No, nothing spectacular.
I don't have any huge problems,
That attract sympathy and attention.
I hate those who are more successful than me,
And all of you who get by so easily.
You always take everything for granted.
I'm so jealous of you, it's disgusting.
I sit here, wasting away,
And I keep you entertained.
Eventually, you'll move on.
You won't notice my tears.
Please don't forget about me,
I promise to be good.
I'm just trying to get by,
Without falling apart.
I'm the broken doll,
Forgotten on a dusty shelf.
All of the other dolls,
Are moving on without me.
