I was recently at a book signing for Wally Lamb's newest book "I'll Fly Away" which deals with women in prison, here in Connecticut. There is a passage that calls abused women, broken dolls...the inspiration for this poem....

"Broken Dolls"

by Amber "V" Moonstone      3/10/08


Broken Dreams

Broken promises

Broken windows

Broken love

Broken dolls....




In the midst of violence
broken dreams, result

from broken promises.



Broken Love
begins with
broken windows to the heart



and then there are the broken dolls.




Those broken women
lost within those broken promises,
staring out those broken windows



knowing only broken dreams of love.




Somewhere between
evening and morning
those broken promises
became a broken heart.



Slipping into the world
of broken dreams
accepting what it all means
and living as a broken doll.



Is there a glue that can repair
all of those broken promises,
all of those broken dreams



or a word that can repair all





Author's notes:  There is still so much domestic violence in this country..especially against women.  I dedicate this poem, to all those broken dolls and send healing waves of love, peace, and light to them, 

Amber "V" Moonstone

'Broken dolls' powerful words that convey this feeling so well. The glue that they need - self esteem and strength to move out and on. No one needs to be a broken doll.

God bless you. Kathy

Hello "V",

I am a repaired "Broken Doll",
from broken hand, cheek, leg, cervical injuries, concusions, contusions of all sorts & more inner damage (maybe that is how my back fracture happened) I was at the ER back in 1988 & the Doctor seeing me for a cervical injury (I couldn't talk or swallow) he asked me if I Loved My odd I thought to myself & nodded. The doc said he didn't believe it because I was on my way to being brought to the hospital in a body bag. WOW & Bam!! I never seen that doc again!!

Although broken dolls, each has been given a choice. Some unfortunately never come to understand they can be free from their brokeness. And I might ad, there are equally as many broken men in the same boat, swamped by broken dreams and promises that have left them utterly destroyed. Thank you for touching on this very sensitive subject with such compassion. Blessings Amber, Holly

You have really described the deep emotional pain lying beneath the trauma of "Broken Dolls". There truly is a lot of violence out there, in there, around there, everywhere we look--yet, we may not always see it because it will be someone's skeleton hidden deeply in their closet. A great write, Amber.

I've read Wally Lamb's book - eye opening heartbreak! I've written on this subject, myself ("Too Late For Mama" immediately comes to mind) - no woman should ever be abused. EV er. You may have saved lives today - well done, Amber.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

What can be expect in a country that resorts to war to solve a conflict? The mentality are shaped now not to discussed but to apply the jungle's law of the stronger.

That's because woman still are afraid to report it
to THE AUTHORITIES or they think their man will change with his conning promises, and empty promises, after a beating he buys her flowers and begs for forgiveness, until the next beating,
and so on, and so on.
sorry for sounding so cruel, but such is life
The miracle glue to your question is to have the abusers "Arrested"
there is no other remedy.
Love & peace be with you
