Not your doll

Ice in eyes,
she craves the fire of your silence
now listen, let her talk for once
cause you never asked,

before you took
because you always knew
that no, and NO,
means no and never yes.

She’s never been your doll
to throw away — discarded broken.

  1. There is so much emotion in your opening lines, Bjorn! It’s brutal.. the way some never ask before they take us.. leaving one brittle to the point that they might be broken inside.

    she craves the fire of your silence
    now listen, let her talk for once
    cause you never asked,

    Beautiful and fondly alive in the eyes of many. Yes, should have been asked!

  3. Wow! The opening salvo really delivers the contrasting images so well. A poem which is very much on point.

  4. Bravo! .. this dance is a complicated two step and both “partners” must now interact for any meaningful change – you are a powerful beginning

  5. Bravo Bjorn for writing with such sparkling strength and concise clarity on such a timely topic…

  6. Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas.

  7. I too, picked up on echos of the “Me Too” movement, which, of course, is very timely. That fire should be stoked and kept alive. “you always knew that no, and NO, means no and never yes” … an awesome line. Given the horrendous disclosures – and the width and depth with no-end-in-sight of this seismic crime, I would call this an indelible line … or, at any rate: it should be.

  8. So, I take it this is an Icy Blythe Clone? I have only Blythe, she is Mango, but she turned out to be a fake. I am not an expert on Blythe, but I went to Blythe Con when it was in San Francico.
