Gray World - Poem by Weldon Davis

The day was dreary,
And all that was near me
Seemed a lil ash gray
No birds were chirping
Nobody looked my way

All I took from the scene 
Was tear....
I mean raindrops came clean, and 
I felt a chill as I walked down the road

With my heart heavy 
I thought of home
Or what used to be home to me

So lonely as the wind blew
I stumbled to
A place that seemed familiar

I was mistaken
Out in this gray world
With no safe haven

Just fading memories of nights past
My thoughts like
10 of me alive in my head
All going different directions

9 of them misled
Came back to the pad
8 something 
Dialed 7 digits
Off of a piece of a label
Of a beer
I 86ed
5 nights ago

4 the good times
Was playing on the radio

Damn, I wish there was
A 3peat button
2 vibe out to

1 of them songs was
About you
In this gray world today

    Wow, this poem must have painted me. I tune in to the music hits of my time (60's -70's) for they bring back a lot of good memories (vibes) and a lot of lost loves. I like the unique way you put the numbers - the 10 of you bursting out randomly like sparks, that's very pithy indeed. (Report) Reply
