I'm not your toy,
I'm not your Barbie,
you can't dress me up,
and put me in your doll house,
make do what you want,
cause i am human,
and not made of plastic.
Believe if it or not,
I have feelings,
that may not be what you want them to be.
Believe it or not,
I have a brain under my hair,
just not an empty space,
for you to fill with thoughts.
Believe it or not,
I am living,
i am not a way for you to play pretend,
anymore.
I know in the past,
I might have been your Barbie,
I let you dress me,
I let you think for me,
I was your toy,
but that game is over,
except that its over,
because I am human.
No longer your Barbie,
no longer your toy,
I am human,
and I have feelings,
and this game is over.
I'm not your toy,
I'm not your barbie,
you can't dress me up,
and put me in your doll house,
make do what you want,
cause i am human,
and not made of plastic.

Wow. This reminds me a lot of how my relationship used to be. It really describes how those type of relationships are. It's amazing. (: I love the style. Good job.

Life is so ironic to understand fully, it takes sadness to know what is happiness. noise to distinguish silent and a broken heart to find true love.

*wipes a tear* you go girl...

 

This poem is amazing. You are very talented.
