Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


Something was tearing inside of me.
Paper ripping,
Paper dolls.
It’s all we are.
Destroyed in the water,
Tossed by the wind,
Devoured by fire.

Paper dolls,
With painted on faces.
Flat,
Smooth,
Like masks.

Paper dolls,
With marks on our arms,
and clip on outfits.
What beautiful dolls we are.
