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.
