Entry: "Idling on empty"

Just a few lines of randomness, trying to purge some idle thoughts that beg me to be set free...


I remember tomorrow as if it were yesterday
Your look when I passed by you
told me things that were secret
even from yourself you kept hidden
the sun the moon and the stars
hoping to claim them another time another place
like stolen family jewels locked away in a safe
they were denied a chance to help illuminate
that time when they took away your soul
and left you there in that place alone
then I remembered tomorrow
as if it were yesterday
and smiled again

Drip
Like molasses you flow over the world
with your hate and your ignorance you go
forth and fool us into believing your lies
Satan you are a trip a slow drip like cancer
eating away at the weaker part of my psyche
until I heard that sound that drip and shut it off
or so I thought but I still heard your lying smile
and became annoyed at that sound that drip
that had lingered in the shadows of my mind
I called my plumber to fix that noise
by reaching for my Bible

~chilln into the weekend~

Hi Greggy,

I have drips in my head that have been haunting me with their incessant pings for years. My plumber is positive quotes and happy images. That is why I visit you, you encompass both big grin
Catch today and be happy, Meadow

Hi Meadow...I think we all have a dripping pipe somewhere...Your plumber is a very good friend of mine, in fact, they even may be related. Stay Blessed!...greggysmile

Brother Greg. What's happening? Thanks for stopping by Beyond. And I appreciate the kind words. We're sort of kindred spirits. I see what you mean about the digital art because you sure are kind of wicked with it man. I don't think I've ever come across a blog with an applet before. Pretty fly dawg!

Your poetry is very exceptional. Drip is good literature at it's best and it's not bad for a brotha who considers himself a non-wordsmith! And a spiritual brother at that. Great job all around man, trust me when I say that I look forward to coming back here again!

Frank..you're too kind my brutha. Appreciate the comments about my verbal stuff, but trust me, I recognize where my calling is...ART. I like playing with the words sometimes though! As for your skillz with the airbrush, well perhaps I should refer to you as 'Legendary Sir Frank'?...greggysmile

thanks greggy. whoa u been in a deep mood lately! have a nice wknd yourself!

big grin @ "deep mood"..I never looked at it that way though.
Them there were just a few completely irrelevant and idle strings of alphabetically rendered verbal innuendo designed to placate and compromise an unsuspecting mind into the relative painless submission to the never-ending passion of illiterate eloquency...huh?...LMAO...greggy

LMAO Glad you dug my wordplay tho, but please believe me that's all it is, I am an artist, not a poet and recognize as such...but it sure feel good to let stuff out every now and then!

Wow Greggy I love both the poems. You really reached inside yourself for these didnít you sweetie. I wish everyone on earth could read Drip. The devil has corrupted and corroded the minds and souls of so many lives. I didnít only use my bible to fix the drip I replaced the pipe. I luv ya my friend have a wonderful weekend G smile

Thanks dear, glad you enjoyed my poem, I'm not as prolific as some of the more established wordsmiths out there but sometimes I do like dropping a few verbs if only to get them outta my head so I can think clearly enough to do my artwink Luv ya back, enjoy your weekend!...greggybig grin
