a porcelain doll

porcelain

there is a deafening scream

that awakens the heart to everything

the earth quakes with rage beneath my feet

life beats a thousand times a minute

but to onlookers the outside of me

is of porcelain perfection

no blinks to be had

make-up beautifully intricate, flawless

my smile precise and stained so lovely

my outfit boldly fashionable

a cause for envy

compliments flow like a strong river

but never quench the thirst

the inside remains parched

searching for sustenance

desperate and shaken

yet tough and still

perfect to the eye

my porcelain style
