Poetry Prompts Day 8 – OctPoWriMo 2016, prompt of porous


There’s nothing romantic about concrete.

It isn’t pretty, can be porous, soaking up troubles

yet tough when matched with steel.

You and I are like that, living here on this concrete

slab, day to day, sometimes it isn’t pretty,

sometimes we soak up just a little too much bitter.

Still love is like steel, shapes us sturdy.
