modern day

as you continue to believe
that it is life that ages you
the unknown truth remains static
in metallic clouds

the machines they infiltrate your mind
controlling your every word
manipulating your every
mundane and manic movement

so your shell deteriorates
to reveal a
rotting, softened soul
black as ladybugs eye
