So Much Unwanted – Written Tuesday 4th May 1999 (Aged 24)

So Much Unwanted

i have nothing to say
the paper is blank
perhaps i should post it anyway
miss you like mad
but our constant indecision
has left us both, a little sad
i feel like a child
i wish i could grow up
even if it was for a while
just to grow tall
so i could reach for the sky
instead of reaching for tissues
every time i have made you cry
who would have thought
that a certain emotion
could be so destructive
i am trying to write to you
but i have nothing to say
it feels so hard to explain
who would have thought it
so much, so much unwanted pain




James Garratt – Tuesday 4th May 1999
