Lost and never found: (i.e. my childhood, also my hoodie)

Lost and (never) found

by Housecat

There's a golden bedroom

That reeks of mall bought perfume

With lilac wallpaper, that recalls a kinder time

When you were small, and it was a time comparable to cotton candy Sweet, soft, and pink And the goodness was gone all too soon

There's a golden bedroom

With echoes of giggles and cries Reminiscent of the sound of rubber bouncy balls There's stickers and bad handwriting on the walls

There's a golden bedroom

On a dresser you'll find, brown curls, stuck in rubber hair ties

There's a golden bedroom

On a dresser you'll find, stamps wasted on postage for lacquered drawers

There's a golden bedroom

On a dresser you'll find, stuffed animals abandoned

There's a golden bedroom

But inside it's absent of a delightful child

There's a golden bedroom

Where the things that made it rich aren't so polished anymore

There's a blighted bedroom

And you'll find the husk of a girl Along with mildew and dusty books

And if you look closely

You'll find she's empty

You'll see she's cracked

You'll feel she's cold Not so warm anymore

This girl

This was excellently coordinated between your choice of words and your choice of pictures. It was tantalyzingly dark.
