Buttons out of Her Eyes ~By CordieB.

Old Teddy Bear by Jambalaya on deviant


She often felt like a soft cuddly teddy bear;
Whose affection was always at his avail;
Yet tossed to the side when the need was not there;
Into the future she stared, hoping love would prevail.

But the prospect of new toys always gave him a thrill;
So there love was neglected from obscurities;
Thus she often lay alone in a corner awaiting his will;
During his unstable moments of false insecurities.

The teddy bear had been used for comfort so long;
Her fur became matted; her filling almost gone;
But through self love and God’s grace she reversed her early demise;
By refusing to allow buttons to be made from her eyes.

~By CordieB – dedicated to all the teddybears out there.  Don’t allow anyone to make buttons out of your eyes . . . You’ll need your vision to see reality!

This one was inspired by Paisley and poefusions tuesday title prompt , which was a line from one of Gregory Corso’s poem, The Mad Yak- “They want to make buttons out of my bones”

Welcome to Poefusion, CordieB. I love your poem as I am reminded of my childhood teddy bear that I couldn’t part with, even now. I don’t carry him around everywhere but, I did keep him and put him in a safe place so I could take him out from time to time. And, no buttons were made from his eyes. We had to stitch him a few times though. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Have a nice night.
