Like You And Me

by Ares   Aug 7, 2013

A cold dead body on the ground;
lifeless meat against wet concrete.
The roar of engines in far distance makes me feel less alone in this black hole of a city.

If only I could remember what humanity felt like, tasted like.
Like licking salty sweat of someones neck.
Rubbing hands against fire in a barrel.

A cold dead body on the ground;
minced meat by the morning.
Special offer, extra large - fries on the side.

Supersize, optimize, finalize and victimize the essence of your self. Portraits on webpages.
Discarded in ditches on the Information Super Highway.

A cold dead body on the ground;
a feast for lesser creatures.
A waste of time for regular people. Like you and me.

    So I've read this twice and my thoughts are so jumbled.....

    I find this piece to almost be hopeless and sarcastic..Your metaphors had this tone to it that said a remembrance for true humanity is lost, and these bodies that are wasting away leaves no hope for the rest of society (you and me)

    I really actually enjoyed all of this...the fragmented sentences, the descriptions, the repetitive line of a Cold dead body on the ground...

    I almost feel this way in a there is no hope for humanity when all these people die from cruel acts...I get it.

    Well written.
