The Desire – Written Thursday 20th May 1999 (Aged 24)

The Desire

it is the hungry desire
it is that need
and we all need to be needed
we need people for our frame
we need because when we bleed –
we need to prevent the pain

it is the hungry desire
not to be haunted by failure
in whatever guise that arrives
so we march over the hills
with our silent drums
it is that need
i need you to need me
because sometimes to be needed
is almost to be believe

it is the hungry desire
and it is that hungry heart
the one that desires a rhythm section
to sing along
and accompany its beat
it is the fear of personal failure
with its sound of ever approaching feet




James Garratt – Thursday 20th May 1999
