Broken Doll: A Vision

By Damien Knight

I dreamt last night of you so fair
In my arms you stood with gentle care
I held you, your glassy obsidian hair
Draped over my shoulders just right there

My heart froze to feel you limp against me
Like a broken doll, for me to carry
All the weight of your sorrow and beauty
Another vision, another lie, another misery

I knew looking into your dark eyes
You would once more speak my heart’s demise
Lady of Shadow’s I know my dreams aren’t lies
Stood as if your frame fractured, your heart cries

I would say so much, I want to hold you
Lift you up and speak things true
I know, it won’t ever be, I can’t love anew
My heart is walled, no one will ever truly do
