Alone

Cut straight to the bone,

In the middle of this combat zone,

Sounds so full blown,

To me it's just another stepping stone,

If I only had a clone, 

noone should have to be alone,

My heart beats slow,

For it's covered in stone,

 Inside feels like home, 

Til I was ripped from my throne,

Here just to pospone,

Added to be the unknown,

My voice has no real tone,

    I love the line, "If I only had a clone". I'd be living it up while he was at work for me. Perhaps we're like in the movie "The Island" and we're surrogates for our masters in a grand world until they need our organs haha. If that's true, are they lonely? Probably, but they'll take our organs when they need them haha. I just hope my master acknowledges that I'm at least alive before they gut me and tear me from my throne. Good write man.
