My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

June 24, 2010 “Don’t even bother…”

June 24, 2010   “Don’t even bother…”

Here’s a piece of poetry for you!
There’s no eloquence here
No fluid, rhyming verse!
No insight.
No profundity.
No pious pontifications.
No reason to it…
Just a ranting man.
I can damn well rant if I want to!
I’m not unhappy!
Not destitute…yet.
I’m not too old, but…
I’m not young enough anymore either.
I’m not rich, nor am I poor…as I could be.
I’m in between.
Can’t cuss much here; my mom might read it
Love seems to escape me, always just out of reach,
Barely beyond the horizon.
I stumble into writing…
A decent piece of poetry or prose
Here and there.
One offering might show a glimmer of brilliance,
And then I write something like this…
Waste of good bytes.
I’m in between.
Hovering
Treading water
Waiting…
For the hammer to fall
Or the other shoe
Or the stock market
Or the price of gasoline
Or the sky.
I’m in between…
Or maybe I’m just hot
And miserable because of the heat
And I just want to bitch a little
And curse this blank white page
That compels me to fill it
With anything…
Even this piece of junk!

Just Say’n
