225. Doll Face


Doll face.

Pretty doll.

Cute face.


Dirty face.

Bawl…and bawl.

Smudged face,

At night’s fall.

Shadow face.

Cringe and bawl.

Wet face,

‘scape the maul!!!

Cracked face.

Lost eyeball.

Doll face.

Broken doll.

Ugly face.

Appall! Appall!

Bloody face.

Masks may wall,

From disgrace.


Can you recall?

The former beauty of your souls’ broke-face?

88. Capture Picture Perfect


Capture with a picture clear,

What all want to see.

The vision of a soul so dear,

And what life should be.

And wouldn’t you agree?

No one wants to see a soul,

Which shows the face,

Of burdens without console,

And mounted high disgrace.

Of thoughts one can’t erase.

So capture picture perfect.

A happy glowing sight,

Then none can there detect,

That there just might,

Be much beyond eyesight.
