The Hanging Doll

Rocking winds
Thrust me indoors
Unchaining the forgotten
On my lap
I clutch my childhood peer
Torn robes of tantrums
Knotted braids of togetherness
Those stiff legs which
Once twirled for me.
And now
The 'lifeless' gazes at me
With mangled eyes of apathy
Guilt crawls in
From the cobwebs of time
The mocking chimes
Outstrip the 'maudlin'
My lost companion hangs on the wall
As nothing but a lifeless doll.
