Concrete Footsteps

Concrete Footsteps

Pounding, concrete footsteps

Announce your arrival

And soon I am trapped,

Torn by metal claws

And imprisoned by geometry.

Forget me at your peril,

In the darkness I persist.

I may be enslaved, but

Your book of knowledge was stolen

And, in the final chapter,

It will be reclaimed.
