Daddy's Ragdoll

I am my daddy's ragdoll.

Sometimes he hits too hard.

He doesn't understand that I am small.

I drew the wrong card

And now I live a life marred.

Mommy refuses to know.

She wouldn't believe when I told.

My ragdoll mouth shut she sow.

On the inside, I feel so cold

Because my ragdoll clothes she sold.

Daddy throws me too far

And my ragdoll seams try to tear.

I wished for safety on a star

Maybe I gave it a scare,

Maybe it just doesn't care

I told mommy what I see

She handed me two button eyes

How could she be

A mommy full of lies

Who ignores me and my cries?

I remember the day that I died

No tears fell from my hollow button eyes

I don't know why I never cried

My small body across the room flies

And the wall broke all my daddy ties.

My mouth opened and screamed

My eyes widened and saw

My arms moved and teemed

My mind thought with awe

Because my daddy had lost his claw.

That day that my daddy sent me to heaven

That day, I was only seven.
