    The Shattered Shell

    Stuck within a walking coffin
    None allowed to see what lies inside
    The locks holding tight

    Years move by in a flash.
    Armor withstanding storm and sand.
    Desire to remember.
    Whether I'm man or machine.

    My face forgotten, even by me.
    Covered by the mask of those possessed.

    In a battlefield chosen,
    By another as faceless as me.
    Yet infinitely more heartless.

    As I fight and fight,
    I run into one such as I.
    Covered head to toe in armor.
    Much similar to mine.

    Is he chained to his role?
    Like I am?
    Slave of the powers that be?

    This goes through my mind for a split second,
    But my thoughts are interrupted by an explosive shell.
    Hitting square into heavily plated chest.

    Barely moving me.
    Reminding me of my task.
    Verily so!
    It is time to kick ass!

    Replying to my foe,
    With missile cluster****.
    His allies all diving to duck.
    Stray rocket annihilating truck.

    The fight raging on and on,
    Adding more and more cracks to the rival shells,
    Of men destined for Hell.
    Collateral damage building higher
    As the steel clad Colossi rampage on..............

    Emerging victorious, I walk from the flames.
    Armor buckles and jerks.

    The more I move,
    The shell fragments beyond repair.

    That in which I have been bound,
    Bits and pieces fall to the ground.
    Locks finally come apart.

    As I shed my shattered Shell
    I feel the wind in my hair,
    The sun touches my pale skin.

    I am reminded something I forgot long ago.
    A machine, I am not.
    Underneath the mask,
    I am a man.
    With the shedding of my steel-plated prison,
    I am free.



    This is just something I rolled with. Was gonna enter this into the POTM, but it went a different direction. Who knows, I might just do that. Dunno yet.

    Whatcha guys think?

    I was trying for a mecha poem, oddly enough. You don't really see many of those, either.
