An Idoll

An idol and a doll -
Living under the same sky
Living in a parallel universe

It was her beloved idol
Above everything else in the world,
Not a soul-less thing
cut out in some common stone

It was to him just a doll
"An idollized doll", he liked to say
A doll she liked to look up to
For where would she go
without a vision of something better,
without a hope for the hopeless,
without a chance of redemption,
without a silent agreement with the universe
that his doll, her idol will be looking out for her?
She was his idol

"He can't see what I see', she liked to think
And so it remained
An idol and a doll -
Living under the same sky
Living in a parallel universe

- Neha
