Rag Doll

upon the shelf of bittersweet
she sat dazed and tormented
eyes ahead and smile affixed
listening to the quiet nights

upon the shelf of bittersweet
she loved with hatred in her heart
and listened to his lies

upon the shelf of bittersweet
she waited impertently
for she knew of his betrayals

upon the shelf of bittersweet
she knew the day would come
when eyes stared not straight ahead
and smiles turned into grins

upon the shelf of bittersweet
she grew stronger by the weeks
to leave this cheat
and find self respect

oh yes ….
she sat upon the shelf
but not for very long…..
