DollBaby, Population of One and Discovery | Poems by J. “Ash” Gamble

She’s a beauty and full
of simplicity
and I want her to remain
like the bleach white snow
I want her to keep the peace
that she hides so well
from the dirty ravages of this
Population of One
I’d be a population
of one
if I could and stay here
in this forest of self,
looking back
looking at me
stretching to meet
a fresh dawn.
I made a discovery of a lake
no one else could see.
I tried to point it out to them
but they looked at me
as if I were crazy.  I took a dip
and never came back.
