To Be Loved – Written Wednesday 7th December 2016 (Aged 41)

To Be Loved

to be loved
to have those
who denied you
really mind you
chasing questions
in the gardens
of the disturbed
be a man, be a man
work out, keep it in
weight, weight but wait
this is an awful gym
angry get angrier
as years advance
and hope turns blue
and love become cruel
where did you
see that turning
yearning, learning, burning
pseudo intelligence
long lost sense
time is self evident
and on the defense
to be loved

James Garratt – Wednesday 7th December 2016
