It Wasn’t Enough – Written Friday 31st March 2000 (Aged 25)

It Wasn’t Enough

she falls to pieces
as i do,
she moves away
as i do,
things will be different now
somehow they feel strange
fall for a while at least
feelings are a feast
but when the feast is over
it can seem cheap
demands made,
demands not met
things could not be saved
now we must forget
as she does
as i do,
sometimes it is not enough
something that you feel
it is just not enough

James Garratt – Friday 31st March 2000
