A living doll that wants to live

This poem I wrote is imagining that the toy dolls we have are actually alive. Also how our behaviour towards them would change if they had felt like us. I hope you like my poem! πŸ˜€

Notice that it’s alive

It breathes silently through the day
In one place it must always stay

It sees and feels and it can hear
Lives its life in the darkness of fear

Scared that one day they’ll make it fall
And will forget to pick it up at all

Or get bored of it in the room
Then throw it away very soon

It just wants a chance to talk
Runaway or even try to walk

It wants to drive a car, climb a tree
The opportunity to be free

Its life is just a fight to survive
It wants them to notice its alive

And a little respect they can give
Because it’s a living doll that wants to live!

    Dolls for the girls
    The care free world they live in

    The dolls live it up
    Beautifully display wanting to enjoy

    The world in its eyes
    Opening wide hoping for miracle

    Or it becomes Chuck
    The evil ducks quack

    The subtle messages
    Crafted on the doll routines

    When the dolls can talk
    The world may live differently

    In the closet the dolls speak
    We never are bored, we make a child happy

    In the day the dolls in play
    The children gathered speak a language

    You have good imagination
    Live it up as life takes you along

    oh my doll was like my friend when i was small. i even used to shampoo her hair, put make up on (with magic colors) and even gave her a hair cut! haha, until one day, a friend told me that they’ll wake up in the middle of the night (like the nutcracker) and i got really scared and chucked them aside since then. hehe.

    sweet poem, in any case! x

    Even a doll can a subject of a poem, i didnt knew. Emotions beautifully conveyed.

  16. Hi there,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog “How I Wonder” and leaving a comment. Please do visit again.

    A lovely poem here. It comes to show that imaginations have no limitations. Even the improbable can be so beautifully described. But then, such are the minds of the artists — they think the unthinkable or something that people avoid thinking. Nice work!


  17. Pat says:

    Oh that poem was so precious! I really enjoyed the read and Thanks for your visit and for your lovely comment. “Happy Sunday” πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  27. Julia Smith says:

    My dolls were always alive to me when I was a child. No flinging them in a corner for me. Always tucked lovingly into their little doll beds.

  28. Collin says:

    Wow!!! U r awesome…..wot a poem full of emotions. I really liked it.

  29. ShΓ’n says:

    Lovely poem, I have to admit these porcelaine dolls tend to freak me out a little bit! They can be so life like it’s as if they’re going to move, and I’m a fan of Stephen King’s the Tommyknockers, and if you’ve seen that then you’ll probably know why I’m a little apprehensive! Going to read some more poems now I enjoyed that very much!

  30. Andy Sewina says:

    Lovely, I wrote a song for Cliff Richard once, I know he’d love this too!

  31. brian miller says:

    a very nice poem…i wonder what it would be like to live as a doll, knowing one day you would be discarded….

  32. Marinela says:

    Thanks everyone,
    Yes i would hate to live as a doll πŸ™ It would be so scary knowing that one day they will just throw you away!
    My sister is afraid of dolls too, she thinks that they stare at her!

    Thank you for visiting my Magpie’s Nest … I got to find your lovely blog!
    Your poetry is quite wonderful, you are very prolific, the photos are great too!

  41. J Bar says:

    How interesting.

  42. Helen says:

    I remember seeing, many years ago, the Twilight Zone episode about the doll! Your poem is really very unique and very interesting!

    Thank you for the visit to my poetry blog … sadly my Mother passed away three months after I wrote that poem. I wrote many poems during the five years I cared for her.

  43. Joanny says:

    I too was looking for the Magpie Tale? however, I was not disappointed. Your poetry ( I read several — reads as coming from someone who has a depth and maturity, I was surprised you were so much more youthful. I though if she is writing this good now well then what will her poetry be like in a few years… probably pretty amazing.

    Love your style,,, pretty awesome reads. Thanks . Not many people know what Shim Sham Shimmy stands for… a jazz tap dance style …


  44. Lady Fi says:

    Love this poem.. same thing goes for teddy bears, don’t you think?

  45. Wanda says:

    Thank you for your sweet comment and following at Moments od Mine, Marinela. Your poem is lovely, I read Magical Shoes too, which I loved. Am looking forward to reading all. My granddaughter writes poetry too, she’s a junior in college. β™₯…Wanda

  46. I clearly remember feeling like this about my dolls as a child. I’m sure it’s why I turned into such a squirrel, hoarding all kinds of rubbish. I couldn’t bear the thought of those dolls, stuffed toys or little plastic animals being thrown out, helpless, but aware.

    I used to draw food for the animals I doodled, too!

  47. Wanda says:

    Found you site today for ABC Wed. Very nice poem, and you layout is very attractive with the notebook.

    I know such dolls. I was one once. Beautifully done.

  60. joely says:

    Every time I read the Velveteen Rabbit, I cry, every single time. Those childhood objects have so many beautiful memories associated with them. For some of us they were the comfort our family could not provide.
