Used and Abused

Used and Abused

A Chapter by Shy Joe
"

First attempt at personification.

"
Purpose is written all over me
Marks of a language for memory

Mighty proud of my job
Serving my master
My body the canvas
For thoughts
Meant to be read for future time

I've been in your pocket
Fondled in your hand
Your words I will keep
Our relationship locket

WAIT!
WHY?

Crumpling me up in such a way
My header to body
Creases are now wrinkles
I was enjoying the car ride

and now I'm airborne......

abandoned I am
no longer useful
the road side I now live
a useless utensil

your words tattooed on my body
the strokes of graphite that was shed all over me
the way your ribbed fingers rubbed and danced on my world

WAS I NOTHING!?

alone I will stay
the elements will take me
nature will have her way
devour every inch of me
a helpless prisoner
cast to the wolves

Who are you dressed in orange
Clad in latex gloves
Undressing me from my contortion
Reveling my undercarriage
Finger following along my anatomy
Discovering my secrets?

WHO ARE YOU CALLING A GROCERY LIST!!!

I love it. I think you did well.
I am now looking at my waste basket full of crumpled paper that has been tossed in there. I should probably use both sides next time though.

I enjoyed reading your composition! Especially the lines:
alone I will stay
the elements will take me
nature will have her way
devour every inch of me
a helpless prisoner
cast to the wolves
Are too good! Great read ☺

This is a great poem!...

"your words tattooed on my body
the strokes of graphite that was shed all over me
