Boy Meets Girl? – Written Thursday 4th November 2010 (Aged 35)

Boy Meets Girl?

it does not need –
to be complicated
have we not
grown out of this stage
have we not –
moved through that phase
surely it is time –
to turn the page
boy meets girl
and falls in love
it has become an emotional whirl
that is way too tough
with stilted emotions
that sting with every touch
and now, it comes –
with such spilt blood
surely this is madness
watching rows of surrealists
paint in twisted sadness
boy meets girl
and they both believe
locks like people
cripple this trusty steed

James Garratt – Thursday 4th November 2010
