You’ve been cluttering my mind

for what seems like eternity

and you’ve muddied my heart

so that it cannot just be.

The mess you leave in your wake

is not one that can be undone

and the roadside litter you exude

makes it impossible to run.

You’ve cluttered my life in ways

so I can never break free

and you get the clean slate

while I sit in a swill of captivity.
