I limped back home tonight
after running away from you.
Mud-sodden shoes, I took off
at last. Only to find you, Agony,
stuck between ridges of my soles
once more. I contemplated
scraping you out yet thought
otherwise, for you acted as my
compeer when even poetry was
missing from the streets of my
thumbprint. I watched you
pierce my sole with a shard of
a past I've long ago broken.
And you smiled yet I felt nothing

I knew then that even Agony left me

*For a club challenge.

    I think one needs to read this twice because after the first reading your a little blown away that it deserves a second look so you can really appreciate the seriousness, and creativity of this poem...

    I love what you have penned by saying you are completely alone that now, even agony has left you. That was just brilliant.

    I tell you what the best part of this poem was,
    "you acted as my
    compeer when even poetry was
    missing from the streets of my

    Amazinggggggg metaphor...just amazing. :)
