The China Doll's Heart

I shall gather the flickers of a human heart

And bind them.

Fragments of broken hearts,

I bind them. They are mine.

In one beating heart they tremor.
In my own heart they keep.

For my own heart was broken;

This porcelain heart was broken.

And if only dreams have I to give,

The dreams of all broken hearts

I give.

I bind them to thee,

To thy steps and to thy shadows watch;

Hear thy own dreams there. And weep.


Yeah I need to work quite a lot on the structure of this, imagery, tone etc. I'll be changing it quite a lot over the next little while, so bear with me. It might change into something else entirely. Constructive criticisms only, please.
