For a Barbie Doll  
How can I explain what you mean to me
For each its different but the same
I couldnt feel he let me cry
I couldnt stand they helped me walk
You won me over for a Barbie doll
As if I wasnt already taken

I thought that I was nothing
Kept everything inside
No secrets shared
Wont see me scared
And I will never cry
Yet somehow he found me
Crawled into my heart
I broke apart
I learned to cry
He held me to the sigh

How can I explain what you mean to me
For each its different but the same
I couldnt feel he let me cry
I couldnt stand they helped me walk
You won me over for a Barbie doll
As if I wasnt already taken

Facing the secrets of ourselves
I thought I knew her
But didnt really
Crying so hard
That I could not see
They help me stay standing
And walked with me
So I could stay
Have my say
Beside me to the end

How can I explain what you mean to me
For each its different but the same
I couldnt feel he let me cry
I couldnt stand they helped me walk
You won me over for a Barbie doll
As if I wasnt already taken

You didnt get mail last year
Thought that's not right
I set out to fix it
And got your smile
Saw you needed the Barbie
And I gave it to you
It was for your friend
I live for giving
With you it was worth it

How can I explain what you mean to me
For each its different but the same
I couldnt feel he let me cry
I couldnt stand they helped me walk
You won me over for a Barbie doll
As if I wasnt already taken

Its not very clear but then
Your more than words
Each one of you
Complex to capture
I cant do justice
But I care and Ive tried to
So this for you
With love dedicated
To Josh MacKay
Kyle, Dirk, and Stician

How can I explain what you mean to me
For each its different but the same
I couldnt feel he let me cry
I couldnt stand they helped me walk
You won me over for a Barbie doll
As if I wasnt already taken

hope you don't mind that i'm responding!
hi there,

i just wanted to comment on your last entry. your poetry is incredible... you have a unique way with words--don't ever let anyone tell you that you're lacking in the talent department!

i couldn't sleep, so i figured i'd fool around... a friend of mine introduced me to this livejournal thing, so i started it and i love it. i too, write poetry, and i was interested in reading other people's lovely words....

take care, feel free to e-mail me whenever.. i'd love to hear from you and i'd love to read some more of your poems... i will read over some of your old entries when i'm not overtired and bleary-eyed... thanks for listening, and thanks for sharing your beautiful words.

take care,
tara

ps~ i especially enjoyed this:
