you are nothing 
but a seductive 
gaping from 
the wall 
you are not 
the woman 
'i once loved 
queenly tall
you are 
a mirage

shot by 
a 18 month 
old child 
deathly pall
you are 
nothing but 
a withered 
aging doll 
your musky 
veiled shawl
one day 
along with 
the wall you 
too will 
fall ..battered 
broken doll
