Write a metaphoric poem - non-rhyming - that does not mention the subject of the poem only refers to it in the framework of the metaphor...let us guess the real subject. Note metaphor is a word comparison of two unlike things, not a description of the thing. 16 line maximum
Mass tagging results in immediate disqualification.
It’s the vacant streets,
The hurried feet
Street lights polish quiet terror.
Like beacons I crowd under.
The closest thing to sanity I have
Black water roots like fingers,
Across a mired mind
Uncertainty sewn on swollen feet
Misery with no company,
If everything we see is light?
Oh my shadow,
Why you haunt me at night?
