China Dolls

Denial runs in black streams through holes in a white heart.
(It's made of china but if it mattered, that'd be unfair.)
Bones shatter underneath the pressure of steel.
(And possibly the stress she would never share.)
And the doctors pack up their bags because they tried
(but her misery caught on and it was too damn dark for them to care.)

"In the morning, will you make the pain go away?"
