Tar and Cement

If every sculpture mimicked a living soul, Mine would look like a cluster-fuck, Cracked, brittle and hard like broken coal. Like a cement monster that slowly got stuck, Pushing and sludging its way around Then imprinted for life by an oncoming truck. And if for a moment it wasn't marooned in the ground As a fixture that people pity and sore It would use its mobility as an onward bound. But I'm as fixed as a black tar pour Over the streets I'm hardened still; Cracked, hard and broken like never before. I'm still here somewhere in the fill Covered up by what I did and didn't do Prisoner by the quiet talks and purple pill I scream inside, but it will never reach you Surrounded by cement and tar Not a sound will ever go through I'm forever held hostage and scarred Surrounded by cement and tar

    Screaming tragic-filled life from the verses. There's a touch of protest though said to be held hostage. Very creative way to describe the state of one's life. A 7 and well-wishes. :) Kim
