New Shades of Grey – Written Tuesday 4th April 2006 (Aged 31)

New Shades of Grey

you will never really feel
and always be,
somehow numb
the last to understand the joke
the last to have fun
your dullness,
will only ever –
invent new shades of grey
unfortunately,
you will be the last to get carried away
you will never be spontaneous
or ever come with passion
sex will be missionary
or down to its last rations
you will never really feel
and always be,
somehow numb
when feelings come calling
even without a starter pistol
you will be the first tor run
afraid of dwelling too deep
you probably have parental controls
on those dreams you have when you go to sleep




James Garratt – Tuesday 4th April
