history sucks. Sudie inspired this, so umm thanks if you like it. and she had nothing to do with it if you hate it ... wouldn't want to slander her name too.

Door Mat

I greet you with my *Welcome*
As you smear the shit from
Your soul all over me
I try and smile
My surface is still strong
It just doesn't look as
Pretty anymore
And in walks everyone else
Trampling me
I'm not really important
I'm just here to keep
Your insides looking

I look up admiringly
Knowing someday
I'll be strong enough
To be the handle
And one day
I'll be able
To lock you Out.

  creative play on an old cliché. you took it, molded it, and made it your own quite well. I particularly liked the bit about locking out those who have trampled you over the years. an inspiring piece

  Never thought I'd read a poem about a door mat and like it.
You should correct the maybe instead of mabe though.
Layer one: plain door mat.
Layer two: a deep meaning referring to people who make our life easier and who we don't notice or even mistreat at times.
Great message
Nothing to say about the form it just sticks together.

  *opens door and looks at door mat*



This was interesting. There are many ways you could interpret this. That adds to the piece even more.

hugs and fingerlickings,
