I am an answerphone
you have connected only
to pre-recorded messages.
Epitaphs of my happiness.
They stand solidly
against all resistance
like tombstones.
they are like proud nails
that the wind batters
deeper and deeper
into solitary confinement
of a singular plot coffin.
I am voicefemail,
hear me lie.
Just a small thought. Not my best work, but an idea I really wanted to pin down. Perhaps I can revisit it later.

In a hundred words, i find this artwork to tbe the most outstanding and thoughtful word art to ever be typed on deviantart. it is all very well thought out, as well as reasoned out! the artwork and skill of `KathrynODriscoll will be forever mantained and remembered, kept in our hearts for when all art is gone. in a nutshell, this well designed poetry is the greatest of all word usage on deviantart! Well done, keep going, and be awesome like you are!
(i am saying this straight from the heart)
this is extra wordage because the heart didnt have a hundred words to say. it had 74 XD

Reminds me so much of how I go through my day - snippets of lies.
An excellent thought and nicely executed, though the enjambment at the end goes on for a while and I was mentally out of breath. Just a thought.
