China doll

She was the perfect china doll

She was completely perfect

without a flaw

 

her lips were red

her mascara black

her hair long and wavy

cascading down her back

 

Her hands so small

with nails painted red

She wasn’t quite so tall

wore heels instead

 

She held herself

with perfect grace

That cheery smile

ever illuminating her face

 

She lived by rote

and by the clock

her actions were perfect

and without stop

 

Her porcelain skin

glistening now

she stood out

in any crowd

 

She was the perfect china doll

she was completely perfect

without a flaw

 

She tried her best

to be that indeed

to be just what society

claimed it would need.

 

She was the perfect

china doll

just hope she never

trips and falls

 

for porcelain breaks much easier than skin.

And you’ll never be able to put her back together again.

and if her perfection was gone…what then?
