Raggedy Anne

I looked into my mirror
I saw not future
I saw no truth
I saw no me
I only saw you.

I saw a raggedy anne doll
With a hole in her hat.
She was smiling brighter than I
As she lifted up her hand

“Do you feel? Do you feel?
Everything that’s pouring down?
This rainstorm you can’t live without,
It’s taken hold.

Hold my hand,
Here we’ll stand
Who you used to be, back when you were free
And who you’ve made yourself, Far from the doll on the shelf,
Though you promised you wouldn’t live in acquiescence.

Do you feel? Do you feel?
Everything that’s pouring down?
The rainstorm you can’t live without,
It’s taken hold.

But you’re not of me.
This is not who I wanted to be.”
This is not who I wanted to be.

[spoken]

Give in? When was this part of life?
Living?
Even death?
Is this how things work now?
Because I never thought lying was the path to freedom.
Or was that just me?
