Poem: Porcelain Doll

By: Sasheera Mehrani Gounden

Beauty encased is picturesque
Cloudbursts exalt to kneel
Celestial memories

Pestiferous insectile lips part,
black hole agape
A flimsy black-laced frock slumps to the floor, a minacious apparition
Eyeballs repose on a lit pyre
Shards of porcelain wedged between pink lips,
Under a darling’s skirt

Within a darkened corner,
To await for indubitable love
Spoiled egg of hopelessness,
the smell of water
To await in isolation,
For delayed flight
