Don't breath too deeply
Don't think so hard
I know you like to be in command
But its breaking my porcelain heart

And you call me your baby doll
And you treat me like a toy
And it's alright as long as you always say you're sorry
All I want is to bring you joy

Broken like a baby doll
But I'll move on
And you play me like a puppet
But I'll stay strong
Just as long as when you leave
You tuck me in between the sheets
And kiss me right between the eyes
And say I love you baby girl forever

Cause you're barely even five feet away
But your miles from my heart
And I'm sitting up high all alone on this shelf
Collecting dust and scrapes and scars

And my painted eyes have always been dry
It's no accident they're blue
An my smiling lips have been sewn shut
So I'll never say i love you

Broken like a baby doll
But I'll move on
And you play me like a puppet
But I'll stay strong
Just as long as when you leave
You tuck me in between the sheets
And kiss me right between the eyes
And say I love you baby girl forever

There were times that you threw me down upon the floor
Tore me apart with words like knives
As if to settle scores

But at the end of the day
All I want to hear you say
Is I love you baby doll
As I watch you walk away

Broken like a baby doll
But I'll move on
And you play me like a puppet
But I'll stay strong
Just as long as when you leave
You tuck me in between the sheets
And kiss me right between the eyes
And say I love you baby girl forever

I love it. :) Great work. It's sad, but it's not whiny or too dramatic. It's creative and different and it appeals to the reader both verbally and visually at the same time. I think your writing style could use some work, but other than that, you have some serious potential to be amazing. I don't know if you've ever heard of this song or not, but while I was reading this, I was thinking of it and I thought you'd like it - "I'm Your Puppet" by Gregory and the Hawk. You should look it up. Anyway, I appreciate you writing this poem. It's very good.
