This Plastic Love

Raizen is a high school student with numerous awards relating to poetry and literature as well as a literary writer for the journalism club.

Plastic hand, plastic skin, plastic hair

Perfect smile, perfect stare

Wouldn’t you say we’re the perfect pair?

With her I’m without a care


Freed from your crystal cage, finally mine

Taken from your jailer’s grasp.

It always has been a matter of time

Within my home, I can’t help but gasp


Oh my darling, my darling.

I’ll buy you perfect clothes, they stare

Oh my darling, my darling.

I’ll give you love, I don’t care


I’ll hold you close, we’re homebound

With you, my life’s been found

I know you’ll stay forever

I know you’ll leave me never


“If you touch my body

I would be delighted,

Your endless smile,

makes me enlightened.”


“Your clothes is always fit,

It’s like you’re never a misfit.

You can always smile,

With your plastic teeth.”


Oh my darling, my darling.

Come to bed, it’s time to sleep.

Oh my darling, my darling.

Come closer for your dress I’ll change.


“Why won’t you talk my darling?

You don’t want me to wait too long.

My love for you is tingling,

I can’t wait (oh) no more!”


“My darling let’s dance,

Or I’ll be broken in half.

(Oh) I’ll just go to rest,

By that time I’d just stab myself.”


Oh my darling, my darling.

Come to bed, it’s time to rest.

Oh my darling, my darling.

Come here and I’ll go to sleep.


Oh my darling, my darling

If you speaketh to me not

Oh my darling my darling

My mouth I’ll seal shut


“My darling I’ve given my life to you

I’ll give it up if I must too

I’ll ever stay still, still every part

I gave myself to a mannequin's heart.”
