His Doll by Gary R. Ferris
The sun comes up,

And soon goes down;

I look in the mirror,

And still see a frown.
I used to be happy,

And life was kind.

Now I am hurting,

And feeling so blind.
What happened to me?

If I may ask;

There is nothing there,

When I perform a task.
Is my heart dead,

Or just very cold?

Do feelings die?

As one grows old?

Whatever happens,

I don’t seem to care;

I just gaze into darkness,

With a silent stare.
As my thoughts run wild,

I start to sigh;

Because I have the answer,

I know why.
A man can lose wealth,

Then lose it all;

But nothing will ever hurt,

Like loosing his doll.
