EMPTY MOMENTS

The stupidity.
The futility.
The meaningless emptiness
of killing time.

Happens all the time.

Time: too precious a commodity
to watch it crawl.
To watch it fall.
Like raindrops.
So many. So fast.
So dreary. So blank.

A wall of grey.

Exhausting. Encompassing.
Stifling. Suffocating.

And yet -
Time flies.
Leaving in its wake
Blinding dust.
And the smell of burnt rubber.
The stench of failure.

The stupid, futile, empty sound
Of the ticking clock.

I hear it all the time.

I guess you blog only when you're sad, lonely and depressed! You will feel better once people come back from vacation.

I love your poems, especially Ode to darkness and Empty Moments (I like its rhythm)

I also like the pictures you put at the end of pin drop and the sweet java one, it shocks its reader who was expecting something grand. Ultimately discovering it in the trivial.
