The Grey Is Great

The journal never lasted long,
The words all plundered by the songs.
Never quite the waterfall,
But wet enough to drown us all.

Now all those things i would never want,
Have come to be relied upon.
They are comforting and formidable,
But they’re fragile and non-refundable.

I felt that the new tasted same.
Then out of the blue comes the grey,
And it’s great.

I thought those years had been and gone.
Formative yet, oblivious.
Enthusiastic to a fault
Back when infinite was worth its salt.
