Dolled up

between wooden skin grits
heartless space occupies
the nested resolve
to self-discovery

the last doll
the hardest piece
the one toughened
by expectations
the one shaped in
mould of sighs
– often the
easiest to open

  1. Helllooooooo my friend. So good to see you. I’m back now from my hiatus.
    I love the poem and it’s significance. It’s simple, yet very profound.
    How are you doing anyhow? Any plans for moving?

    1. HELLO! πŸ˜€
      It has been such a long time! I feel so happy talking to you! ^_^
      I’m doing okay! Still stuck in the web of entrance tests and such. Nothing is fixed about moving yet though.
      How’re you? And the family? Hope you’re done with the tedious process of moving.
      Much love and a one-month-hiatus-worth hug! ❀ ❀

      1. Heyyyyy sweetie. Ugh! No, I’m not done with the tedious process of moving. Still in a temporary place that is way to big for us. I feel like I have clean too much. The family is fine, but it is really difficult homeschooling my son. I feel overwhelmed. I’m sure everything will work out in the long run though. Crossing my fingers.
        Huge hug to you, my friend.

        Thank you very much! I hope so. ^.^

  2. excellent post… btw, I love those Russian dolls(matryoshkas)… πŸ™‚ – layers of complexity which render easy solutions such as plebiscite or partition impracticable and call for a more sophisticated approach… πŸ™‚
