Dart Board

Like a dart board
I can handle a good game
I get pierced
Sliced
Torn down
Many exert their frustrations
From the world
This place

I'm medieval
I love watching battle
Each dart thrown
A spectacle of madness tackled

I'm always on the wall
People constantly stare
In desperate need of dough
Place bets on me, do you dare?

I'm shaped like an onion,
I can be smelly 
But very attractive
Although I appear shallow
My layers can bring out your best
Our relations are always 50/50
If it were any other way
You'd just look at me 
I'm at the wall hanging solitaire

    An imagery I have not seen before. Creative for sure. The poem kind of brings to mind the Nine Inch Nails song, hurt. I don't know why because that song is more about self affliction. I guess if we allow ourselves to be the dart board then that is a form of self affliction, then again if you don't take a dart every now and then it gets boring lol. Nice poem Sharon. I do see your personalization in your poems, probably why I enjoy them. Take care and make sure to throw a few darts when needed.
