IGWRT's Sunday Mini-Challenge - Dolls Revisited "Becoming"



Becoming

I fell for a boy
wearing an octopus tattoo

became hypnotized
by the way 
he moved his ink,

forlorn when he 
chose another,
said I was shallow.

Self pity nor sainthood's 
for me.  Took it upon myself
to become what I love;

I wear it better, anyway.

I love the way you included an octopus tattoo, and ink. This is a very different kind of love poem for sure.

This is also a good message to pass on to the girls who created these dolls - to become what they love, not seek it in Silly Boys, hee hee.

This is super, Margaret. Love the second and fourth stanzas in particular (tried to choose one, couldn't).

Love it. Good for her that she didn't succumb to self pity.

Very late here but once again I love the dolls and prompts. I hope you will post them again as prompts sometime in the future. Also I like the creative direction you took with this octopus woman doll. Glad sainthood and self=pity are not the only choices in life!
