Verb. spraff (third-person singular simple present spraffs, present participle spraffing, simple past and past participle spraffed) (Scotland, colloquial) To speak excessively or pointlessly.
And I talked like an idiot for hours,
Just to take away the vacant spaces,
And I caught your blank bored gaze…
like a dream catcher… and went on.
I have a thousand blueberry thoughts,
saccharin and salty like sea water taffy,
Each a jumble of pious and profane,
a smorgasbord for all tastes.
And I can see your internal plight,
I can hear your silent scream…
munch – like as we sit beside the ocean…
But we are on our way back.
And I want to make every minute,
so our time can stretch out,
because sometimes it is not home.
Sometimes the place you’re leaving,
feels more like home…
Than anywhere else…
so I keep spraffing…
to hide that hurt.
