Two plush dolls lay on the floor
Quite a sight they must be
I haven't played with them in months
And yet here they were, staring up at me.
(Play with us!) They would both plead
Yet somehow I could see the love in their eyes
They looked just like my parents when they were younger
But all I can hear was my own cries.
One of them wore a deep green tunic
It had an angelic face and pure white hair
It wore an odd hat with two trailing yellow ribbons
Its deep auburn eyes were warm and full of care.
The other doll had red hair up in pigtails
Wearing white and purple mage's robes
Its eyes were like two happy rubies
And in its hands were a little replica of my mother's Dual Halos.
They were the very first toys ever given to me
By some crazy witch named Mel
Whenever my father would tell me a bedtime story
We would let the dolls listen to him as well.
I pick up the "Rue" doll and stare at it
My mother's empty room was dark, but I could plainly see
Those soft brown eyes were gleaming in the light
The doll was smiling back at me.
This is a poem that I wrote for my first Threads of Fate OC Rumi Artema, Mint and Rue's eldest daughter. :) Thanks for reading!
