Don't Toy with Me

Dear Mr. Can You See Me,
I beg you 
please treat me 
like I am your old rag doll 
missing her left eye. 

Let me be the conductor 
of your old wooden train set,
I promise not to stray 
to far off the tracks. 

Dear Mr. Can You See Me,
Don't you trust me? 
to drive 
the barrel of monkeys and forgotten teddy to safety? 

I trusted you 
but you left me on the highest shelf 
gathering dust,
because your love strayed 
and I am not pretty enough.
