Spray It With Words

Updated on March 31, 2011

I carry you around in my backpack

On a mission to spray an art type plaque

In a tin can you wait calm and collected

To this can I come respected


Some call it a waste but I call it talent

To me it flocks like a woman a gallant

It roams the streets close in hand

Waiting to ignite its spray expands


With my eyes it visual examines

It craves with hunger starvation famines

A white wall untouched or slightly stained

Inside a masterpiece it strongly contains


The time has come for it to release

Hoping it doesn’t get extracted by the police

As I set it in motion and press down tight

Hitting the brick wall up real tight


Allowing the sprays sensation to express

Onto the walls emotions confessed

Using every last drop inside

Expressions immersed no swallowed pride

      Bella your a dollar and a quarter half past three

      You need to be in a picture framed for me

      So I can see what inspiration is meant to be.

      Thank you for the morning inspiration! =]

      sophie, Thank you I appreciate the comment!

      Ch, Thank you, the can is an artist itself....

      Saddle, Awww thank you you are very kind! I have a few friends who spray paint have got cited many many times and I just feel bad because they are just expressing their artistic minds but at the same time it can also be done on canvas....

      smiles :)

      I am often amused/amazed/delighted at these artist's of the night, their daring feats of spraying their colored souls on walls, trains, bridges of all kinds. I have a great respect for artistry of every kind. You my dear sprayed us with your delightful verse and put it all in it's proper perspective of creativity. Hugs

      Painter of words in passion so divine. Nothing to hide other than what only you can feel. Others may see it, but only you know for sure.

      I would love to be your paint in a tin.

      Together we would sneak in the din.

      No braver a pair, the world as our dare.

      One night's romp will ever be talked of.

      "The wonder" they say as a brightest new day shines for all that need something to believe in...

      What could be a better outcome of two friends!!!
