Sitting home alone in my striped socks
Swinging my feet back and forth above my bedroom floor
There’s no one but me and my striped socks
Looking down over my bedroom floor.

Mommy died, Daddy went away,
Don’t have any friends that want to play
So I think I’ll build my very own castle today
In the middle of my bedroom floor.

It’s only me and my striped socks
Stacking pillows on my bedroom floor
I’ve found a friend for me in my striped socks
And our playground is my bedroom floor.

Lights out, flashlight on
We’ll keep playing till the break of dawn
Till all the last rays of sunlight are gone
In the windows shining over my bedroom floor.

I became royalty with my striped socks
Built a kingdom on my bedroom floor
Addressed all my subjects and my striped socks
In the dark on my bedroom floor.

So if you ever chance to open my bedroom door,
This is what you’ll find:
A fairy queen in glory on her courtroom floor,
Remembered in no one’s mind.

She was left alone on the cold asylum floor,
With her striped socks on and far from fine.

I guess I should welcome myself here. So what I see here is alot of potential that seems to have exceeded. This, to me, gives more of a creepy atmosphere as if the protagonist was about to go crazy and while I didn't see that happen, she didn't have the best of backstories either. Good job there.

Great job! Avenge you do amazing work, the only thing I maybe saw on this one, was just to go over your words and see if you could improve any of the lines. But other than that; it was AMAZING!!!!

@Beila Thanks so much for the comment, that means a lot! There are so many people who view my work and don't comment or rate or anything. It's depressing:/

Wow, the rhythm in this poem is awesome. You keep constant pace and tone, and I love the look we get into her mind. The ending is spot on, too, and I agree with Amai; I actually checked to see if this was in the "Song Lyrics" category. Awesome poem!

I never thought of it as a song, but that brings a lot to mind. I actually write music, I should try that!:) And strange music? Oh please. I bet I can top you.

I could actually imagine this as song lyrics. Of course, I listen to strange music, but the beat works and the rhymes are very good.
