Building Blocks

Building Blocks

 

Building blocks on repeat again

Wine ever smelled so good

Building blocks on repeat again

Fermenting if it could

 

Building blocks on repeat again

Constructing is a tool

Building blocks on repeat again

Yet wield you’re still a fool

 

Building blocks on repeat again

But one block at a time

Building blocks on repeat again

No reason nor ere’ rhyme

 

Building blocks on repeat again

Until your fingers bend

Building blocks on repeat again

The hurt is just pretend

 

Building blocks on repeat again

The dunce of moral pride

Building blocks on repeat again

And knock them down inside

    great meter and rhyme in this rather troubled poem. I enjoyed reading it very much. The repetition made it seem like a song. In fact while reading it aloud I found myself reading in a sing song voice, Have a happy day. diamond

    Lovely, especially with that rich refrain hammering home the half elusive concept of starting over yet repeating mistakes sans learning, as it were. Too perfect, if that is the thought, since seems what Scripture indicates regarding being drunk, hauntingly because that has severe spiritual implications. Beautifully rendered with excellent imagery, subtly eloquent in disarming simplicity effectively delving deeper. Thanks for sharing. I rather like it.

    ttfn,
