Just “One Word” Away (“Doll”)

written by: Phyllis P. Colucci



One word becomes one idea, becomes one sentence, becomes one poem, becomes one story. It must start from just “one word”. Today my one word is “Doll”.



Suzette kept her in a secret room, because “Rita” was her most treasured doll who became her most trusted friend. No one knew about Rita, except Suzette. They laughed, they talked and they cried together; and Suzette always looked to Rita for guidance. Rita always had the answers to the unknown and to the mysteries of life – Suzette’s life. Rita had the most unique sparkling rhinestone eyes that Suzette had ever seen. These were magical eyes that were alive, intriguing and mesmerizing; eyes which spoke to Suzette through a simple stare. They always shared deep conversations through Rita’s bewitching eyes. Suzette was captivated by this enchanting doll. Their souls united and their hearts soared each time Suzette visited Rita in her secret room. Rita knew Suzette well and Suzette knew Rita well – they were never at a loss for words. Rita existed in Suzette’s world and Suzette existed in Rita’s world. Once their worlds met, it was at those moments that Suzette discovered there was a very thin line between reality and make-believe; between natural and supernatural. They continued to cross that line in order to share a lifelong friendship like no other.



A secret Doll in a secret room
“Rita” was her name
She spoke through sparkling rhinestone eyes
Suzette was never the same
– Bewitching eyes so mystifying
– Omnipotent and gratifying
…She solved all mysteries of the unknown
And found answers to Suzette’s strife…
But no one ever knew of her
She dwelled within the afterlife

Her intriguing eyes were so alive
One destined goal – to mesmerize
A treasured Doll with special powers
Quite attentive for myriads of hours

Precisely wise in her own right
Cleverly sharp be it day or night
Messages received with tender care
Through the magic of a loving stare
Exchanged conversations through supernatural influence
…A kindred spirit of consecrated affluence

Suzette embosomed all she could
From “Rita” of another sphere
Who lived in a universe so far away
Yet Suzette miraculously kept her near
…A transcendental alliance – devoid of any fear

Her world of charm and mysticism
Was where the paranormal reigned
This secret Doll from a secret room
Was specially chosen to be ordained

…Linked endlessly to Suzette’s world
A natural world of reality…
Where a very thin line shall always be crossed
As they remained joined in totality
Two phenomenal lives forever entwined
Through a friendship of blessed immortality



A make-believe story of a special doll connected to a special girl. Their friendship grew once that very thin line was crossed between their worlds – a world of reality and one of the supernatural.
