Little clockwork doll
Hold up your hands
And plead
Little clockwork doll
I have my needs
And greed
Little clockwork doll
You are the source
And seed
Little clockwork doll
My little slave
Unfreed

Little baby cry
I’ll do to you
As to me
Little baby cry
On this alone
We may agree
Little baby cry
We suffer now
We bleed
Little baby cry
I am the plant
You the seed

Little clockwork doll
Hold out your heart
And sing
Little clockwork doll
With fear is joy
I bring
Little clockwork doll
Your world so vast
Everything
Little clockwork doll
A little sleep
A sting

Little clockwork doll
All the many gifts
I bring
Little clockwork doll
A broken heart
Is everything

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
