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.
