Porcelain Doll

November 15, 2008
don’t bend her
you’ll break her
she’s fragile
she’ll snap if you pull

can’t mend her
you made her
cry tears
confirmed her fears

don’t touch her
now you’ve crushed her
very soul
that’s innocence you stole

can’t help her
or save her
and now she’s gone
she’s tripped, fell down

don’t warm her
you’ll conform her
she’s nor his nor yours
she’s no ones now

don’t bend her
you’ll break her
for all in all
she’s just a porcelain doll

I like how you make her sound really precious and delicate, something to be respected almost.

I like the title and I think It's a nice poem. It almost sounds like the porcelain doll is a little girl.
