Poetry: Dollhouse

Poetry: Dollhouse 4

A story of lives lived in the shadows of the spotlight, frittered away in a haze of harsh lighting and loud music until what remains is just a broken shell of the original.

Poetry: Dollhouse 5

 

Dazzling lights in rainbow hues,

Music soft, steps right on cue.

Bodies swaying – gentle brushes, halting touches;

A lingering glance, movements in a trance…

 

Melodies sweet, soft lights enhance,

Painted lips and powdered charm.

 

Sparkling fabrics adorn anorexic frames,

Vibrant smiles and anonyms;

Alluring words and curtsies disguise,

Shifting glances, lifeless eyes.

 

Crimson fountains flowing full;

Into blissful oblivion, all senses pull.

 

Painted dolls in rooms of glass,

Keyed to smile, simper, laugh;

Kaleidoscope beams the shadows chase–

Bodies move in euphoric haze.

 

But when with dawn, darkness descends,

Nocturnal angels, into the shadows fade.

Poetry: Dollhouse 6
