Porcelain Doll

Last evening Anna went out crying
She walked round and round
Talking to silhouettes
Looked up and said,
Oh Lord, I am sick n tired
Why I have to be so undesired?

I think of her and toss and turn all night
Her mama broke my porcelain doll

Anna said acceptance comes with time
Oh, I say it comes from within
You are my heart’s delight but I don’t wanna rob the cradle… I really don’t want to

I think of her and toss and turn all night
Her mama broke my porcelain doll

She said, I am leaving for Hilliard tomorrow,
I said can I come?
She said, No, but let’s share one last cigarette,
Take me for a long ride
And sing our favorite song

I drove her around the town
She laughed like a child,
Pretending to be happy
Until tears came rolling down her eyes

But I knew
I knew she was pricked and wounded deep inside

I think of her and toss and turn all night
Her mama broke my porcelain doll

I shudder, my hand trembles
The nib of my new fountain pen breaks
I can’t think
I can’t write
I can’t sleep
Her words echo in my mind
She said, we chase each other like day and night
That can never meet
And that’s what mama says

I think of her and toss and turn all night
Her mama broke my porcelain doll

I wonder
Why?
Why?
Why?
Her mama broke my… porcelain doll
