Your Paper Doll

Your Paper Doll

By Karyn Indursky



Give me caramel hair with golden honey streaks 
to accent aloe eyes smiling above coral lips 
before you paint my face in cosmetics 
in allowance for you to cut me a body 
hugging red wine dress with tea leaf embroidery 
glimmering until it meets sheer lace trim skimming 
cucumber grass beneath my vanilla bare feet 
as I wonder into the candy apple threshold of my 
gingerbread house to gobble down your 
luscious forbidden sweets in mocking satisfaction 
like me filling your sweet tooth starving to eat me 
alive until nothing's left, but a hollowed me to be... 
your paper doll.

smoothie...this is one of my older pieces, but i'm glad you enjoyed the read. it's interesting to see the responses i get not only from newer pieces, but older ones and honestly sometimes i shock myself when i look at what i had written, but it takes me for a trip through memory lane.
