Glass Ceiling

Poem #5

"Glass Ceiling"

Television Drones,
Unblinking Eye.
Creation Clones,
Living A Lie.

Love Put on Hold,
As Time Goes By.
Forever Alone,
Not even a Cry.

Silent Telephones,
Disconnect the Sky.
Eternal Stones,
Muster one last Try.

Drudging Bones,
Breath sucks Dry.
Vulture Crones,
Releases a Sigh.

    This is really sad. But I like the way you wrote it, and the rhyme too:)
    Great job.

      It is really sad. It has multiple meanings. The utter alone-ness that we all ultimately experience even if we have a mate. Its much worse if you don't. And I have a philosophy degree so there is a bit of Albert Camus in there "The myth of Sisyphus." The living a Lie part, not living authentically being a TV addict instead of an inspirational person someone you could look up to. uuugggg!
