Broken Doll

They gathered up all the pieces of her

Collected all of the broken bits of –

Her Doll

They fed her soothing syrups

Injected calming medicines

(She waited helplessly

A long time seemingly

For surgery)

He sliced her arms open

Fixed her broken bones

Pins and plates

Replaced a part

Terrified her heart

Broken doll

Stitched her open skin

Closed the wounds

Braced and wrapped her arms

Hospitalized

Released

Broken doll

Traumatized

Forsaken

Still

Broken doll

Still

Broken
